Hey! You are correct. Answer choice D is the best option to go with. Remember that solubility depends highly on the polarity of the solute and solvent. Notice how the solvent is polar due to the different terminal atoms (they are not all the same). Then the solute happens to be non-polar. Remember that polar and non-polar compounds do not mix well and aren't very soluble. Hope this helped!
