How do solute particles increase boiling point?

    • Please post this type of questions in the HW section using the template.
    The question is:

    Which solution listed below is going to have the highest boiling point?

    A. 1.5 m NaCl
    B. 1.5 m AgCl
    C. 2.0 m C6H12O6
    D. 2.0 m CaCl2
    E. 1.0 m Al2(SO4)3

    I chose D (which was right) because in a solution, the more solute particles there is the higher the boiling point (this is what I learnt). Could someone tell me if this is the correct logic?
