Correct option is
B

Dead Sea

With 33.7% salinity, the Dead Sea is one of the world's saltiest bodies of water. The Dead Sea is landlocked and in the lowest valley on earth. All the minerals of the surrounding countryside get washed into one pool, which in turn gets baked by the sun. This concentrates the salts so much that the Dead Sea is 10 times as salty as the ocean.
