Upto my knowledge,

Acetylene gas have the widest explosive limit.
But not the most explosive gas!

The most explosive gas is Hydrogen.

So the question should be twisted a little bit.
For the answer to be acetylene.

By the way, the terms may vary according to the available conditions (eg. temperature, pressure, volatility).
