Answer: $0.05\;M\; \text{glucose}$
Molarity (M) is defined as number of moles of solute dissolved in one litre (or one cubic decimetre) of solution, $M = \large\frac{\text{ Moles of solute }}{\text{Molarity Volume of solution in litre}}$
$0.3 \%\; w/v \rightarrow 0.3 \; gm$ of Urea in $100\;mL$ of Water.
Mole of Solute $ = \large\frac{0.3}{60} $$ = 0.005\; mol$
Molarity volume of solution $ = 100\; mL = 0.1\;L$
$\Rightarrow M = \large\frac{0.005}{0.1} $$ = 0.05\;M$
This is identical to the molarity of $0.05\;M\; \text{glucose}$, among the choices given.
