Which of the following would describe the behavior of the molecules or ions of $AgNO_3(s)$ in water?

A

$Ag^+$ ions are surrounded by the oxygens of water molecules, while $NO_3 ^-$ ions are surrounded with the hydrogens of water molecules.

B

$Ag^+$ ions are surrounded by the hydrogens of water molecules, while $NO_3^-$ ions are surrounded with the oxygens of water molecules.

C

$Ag^+$ ions are surrounded by the oxygens of water molecules, while $NO_3^-$ ions are surrounded with the oxygens of water molecules.

D

$AgNO_3$ does not separate into ions in water because it is not water soluble.
