(i) Weight of sugar syrup =214.2g
Weight of sugar in syrup=34.2g
$\therefore$ Weight of water in sugar syrup=(214.2-34.2)g
$\Rightarrow 180.0g$
Molecular weight of sugar=$(C_{12}H_{22}O_{11})$=342
$\therefore$ Molal concentration =$\large\frac{34.2\times 1000}{342\times 180}$$=0.56$
(ii) Mole fraction of sugar
(Mol.wt of water=18)
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{0.1}{10+0.1}=\frac{0.1}{10.1}$$=0.0099$
Hence (a) 0.56,0.0099 is the correct option.
