Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

To determine the gram of sodium we have to first of all write the chemical reaction of sodium with sulfur.

We have

2Na+ S=>Na2S

From the reaction 2 mole of sodium react with 1 mole of sulfur.

Now,weight of sulfur=16.5 g

Mole of sulfur=weight/Atomic weight =16.5/32=.515625 mole

So mole of sodium =2*.515625=1.03125

Weight of sodium =mole*atomic weight =1.03125*23 =23.7 g(answer-option D)

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
