A basis of Arrhenius is a substance that, when dissolved in an aqueous solution, increases the concentration of hydroxide, or OH-, ions in the solution. I think that the correct answer of the above mentioned options is option A. the reaction that shows an example of a base Arrhenius would be NaOH(s) --> Na+(aq) + OH–(aq). I hope this answers the question.
