The correct answer is 1) KNO3 and H2SO4. An electrolyte is a liquid composed of ions, that is broken down during the process of electrolysis (when an electric current passes through the electrolyte). This means that electrolytes dissolve in liquids, such as water. From KNO3 and H2SO4 both are dissolved in the water, they are therefore the correct answer.I hope this helps.
