Solution

The correct option is C KI
SO2: Sulphur and oxygen are both non-metals and therefore, SO2 is a covalent compound.

ICl: Iodine and chlorine are both non-metals and therefore, ICl is a covalent compound.  

KI: Potassium is a metal and iodine is a non-metal. Therefore, KI is an ionic compound (due to the electronegativity difference between the metal and the non-metal).
  
CHCl3: Carbon, hydrogen and chlorine all are non-metals and therefore CHCl3 is covalent.
