Solution

The correct option is D The strong affinity of sulphuric acid for water
Sulphuric acid is called the king of chemicals. It has a great affinity for water. It readily removes elements of water from other compounds i.e, it acts as a dehydrating agent. It absorbs water from other substances without dissolving in it, so it is considered a good drying agent.
