Solution

The correct option is D HOClO2
HCl, known as hydrochloric acid and is not an oxoacid but haloacid. All oxoacids have the acidic hydrogen bound to an oxygen atom, in HCl the hydrogen is bound to the chlorine atom making it a Lewis acid.
Except HCl, all other HOCl, HOClO, HOClO2 are oxa-acids.
