Solution

(d) 4196
Moles of Na = 1.00/23.0 = 0.0435
Cathode-half reaction will be
Na+ + 1 e- → Na
It states that for every one Faraday consumed, one mole of Na is liberated.
This means to get 0.0435 moles, we need to use 0.0435 Faraday.
We know that
1 Faraday = 96500 coulomb
0.0435 Faraday = 4197.75 coulomb
So, the nearest option is 4196.
