which would be the best anwser here?
my guess was D but i wanna be sure

Ammonium nitrate is sometimes used as a high explosive which reason best explains this?
A)extremely water soluble
B)contains ammonium ions
C)excellent commerical fertlizer
D)contains nitrogen in both its highest and lowest oxidation state
E)none

NH4 NO3 is a high explosive because it reacts with organics with a high energy in a fast reaction...and is cheap. Ammonium nitrate by itself can explode at elevated temperatures as it decomposes to nitrous oxide, so the best answer would be E.
