The correct option is A

The strong affinity of sulphuric acid for water


The properties of sulphuric acid are:

(1) It turns blue litmus red.

(2) Sulphuric acid has a great affinity for water.

(3) It readily removes elements of water from other compounds i.e, it acts as a dehydrating agent.

(4) It also acts as a good oxidising agent.

So among the given options, "Sulphuric acid has a strong affinity for water" is the correct option. Rest all the other options are not properties of sulphuric acid.
