Answer: Option (D) is the correct answer.

Explanation:

A ionic compound will have opposite charges on the 2 atoms attached to each other.

When ionic compound is in solid state then atoms will be more closer to each other and also due to the opposite charges the molecules will have strong force of attraction between them.

In order to conduct electricity, free movement of ions is required. So, a solid with ionic bonds is not able to conduct electricity as molecules or ions are closely held together.

Whereas when a substance that is composed of atoms that are held together by ionic bonds is dissolved in water then its ions will start to move freely from one point to another. Thus, this solution will be able to conduct electricity.

Thus, we can conclude that out of the given options, conducts electricity when it is dissolved in water displays a property of a substance that is composed of atoms that are held together by ionic bonds.
