Ionic solids do not sustain/conduct an electric current in the solid state but do sustain/conduct an electric current when dissolved in water because:

  1. ionic solutes create conductive molecules with water.
  2. ionic solutes dissociate in water, creating free moving ions.
  3. ionic solutes release electrons when dissolved in water.
  4. ionic solutes allow water molecules to become ions.
Correct Answer: Option(b)
Solution: In solid state ionic solid exist as solid whole in solution state ionic solid ionizes into its constituent ions. Ions results  conduction: in solid state ionic solid  do not conduct electricity while in solution state it conduct.
