A)
Answer:0.047 M
Molarity (M) is defined as number of moles of solute dissolved in one litre (or one cubic decimetre) of solution, $M = \large\frac{\text{ Moles of solute }}{\text{Molarity Volume of solution in litre}}$
Given, Volume of solution in litre $ = 4.3\;L$
Molar mass of $Co(NO_3)_2.6H_2O = 59+2\times (14+3\times 16)+6\times18=291\;g\;mol^{-1}$
Therefore number of moles of solute $= \large\frac{60}{291} $$= 0.206\;mol$
$\Rightarrow$ Molarity $M = \large\frac{0.206\;mol}{4.3\;L} $$= 0.047\;M$
