$M=18=\large\frac{Moles\;of\;solute}{Volume\;of\;solution\;in\;litre}$
(i.e) ,18 mole $H_2SO_4$ or $18\times 98g$ $H_2SO_4$ are present in 1000ml solution.
Since density of solution =$1.8g/ml$
Weight of solution =$1.8\times 1000=1800g$
Weight of water =$1800-(18\times 98)$
$\Rightarrow 1800-1764$
$\Rightarrow 36g$
Now ,molality $H_2SO_4=\large\frac{18}{36/1000}$
$\Rightarrow 500$
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
