Acidity of Oxides

Why is the answer A here?


strength of oxyacids increase left to right and bottom to top
so Na<Al<S


one question,
if it increases left to right, what about F2O? wouldn’t it be a weak acid because F is strong? what am i missing here :frowning:

but oxyacids can’t have metals?

Edit: the choices have Na and Al

that’s a great point, Al is amphoteric so it can still behave as an oxyacid
Na2O shouldn’t be an oxyacid, instead it acts as a base, so it will definitely have the least acidic/oxyacidic character out of the three options given
