Answer: Option (a) is the correct answer.Explanation:the Solubility of a gas can be increased by increasing the pressure in a gas. As in the increase of the pressure, the molecules come closer to each other and the number of gas molecules will decrease as the molecules dissolve due to an increase in the pressure. In the increase of the temperature, the kinetic energy of the molecules increases. Therefore, the gas molecules move randomly in place and not be soluble.Therefore, we can conclude that the increase in pressure increases the solubility of a gas.
