A solution is made with 2 g of salt (NaCl) and 150 g of water (H2O).

A). The salt and the water are BOTH solvents.
B). The salt is the solute, and the water is the solvent.
C). The salt and the water are BOTH solutes.
D). The salt is the solvent , and the water is the solute.

I am not sure, but I have come down to two decisions. A or D. But I am more positive about D being the correct answer, please help!!
