Which one of the following pair of solutions are expected to be isotonic at the same temperature?

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\text{0.1M urea and 0.1M KCl}\\(b)\;\text{0.1M }Ca(NO_3)_2\;\text{and 0.1M}\;K_2SO_4 \\(c)\;\text{0.1M KCl and 0.1M }Na_2SO_4\\(d)\;\text{0.1M urea and 0.2M }MgCl_2\end{array}$

Can you answer this question?

The solutions with same osmotic pressure are called isotonic solution.
The compounds with same molarity (C) and same Van't Hoff factors (i) will have same osmotic pressure.
Here $Ca(NO_3)_2$ and $K_2SO_4$ has same molarity(0.1) and same i(3).
Hence (b) is the correct answer.
