Solution

The correct option is D n-hexane

Sulphonation - In alkanes, it occurs through the free radical mechanism.

mostly, lower alkanes are less stable because of free radicals. While in higher alkanes get easily occurs.

Among these options, n-hexane has the maximum number of carbon, so it easily gets sulphonate.

Hence, option(d) is the correct answer.
