Option B is the correction answer because depression in freezing point depends upon the number of atom, ion or molecules present in the solution which decreases the polarity between solvent molecules.  For example: Addition of NaCl to water decreases its freezing point to -9 ° C i.e. at this temperature water will melt also.
