Solution

The correct option is D It has catenation property
Sulfur found most useful application in the gunpowder and explosives. Also it has a very distinct and bad smell. Its melting point is 392.2 K and boiling point is 717.8 K.

Sulphur shows catenation property.
pπpπ bonding is not possible in sulphur due to its larger atomic size.
Thus, each sulphur atom in S8 forms two sigma covalent bonds with each of its neigbouring S atoms to get their octate configuration.
