1. I think I got the answer.

Molar Mass = 119 g/mol

Molecular formula is the same = C6H5P

2. I wonder how you came up with 119 g/mol?
delta T = Kf*m
5.5-4.3 = 1.2 for delta T.
I found Kf = 4.90
1.2 = 4.90*m
m = 1.2/4.90 = 0.2449
m = moles/kg solvent
moles = m*kg solvent = 0.2449*0.025 = 0.00612 moles.
moles = grams/molar mass or
molar mass = grams/moles = 2.50g/0.00612 = about 400 or so. Check my work.
