Solution

The correct option is D

oxygen is evolved at anode


The ions present in the solution are Cu2+,H+,SO42 and OH, during the electrolysis of aqueous copper sulphate solution with platinum electrode,below are the reactions happening at cathode and anode.

At Cathode:Cu2++2e Cu

At anode:OH OH+e

4OH 2H2O+O2

Here the oxygen is evolved at anode.
