Water is polar in nature the above options NaCl can only go with it.

Yeah true as Na-Cl posses both positive and negative charge which can easily get ionized in water so this makes it very soluble in water compared to the rest.

Because, sodium chloride is a polar(ionic) compound. So it is easily dissolves in water.

Water is a polar compound that dissolve only polar and ionic substances. All hydrocarbon or organic compounds are no polar and are insoluble inwater.

Polar solvents only discovered polar and ionic compounds, Al hydrocarbons (eg methane, Vaseline) are non-polar and only dissolved on polar and no ionic compounds.
