Determining the Limiting Reactant from Moles

CHEM-DWTLG8

What is the limiting reactant when 2 moles of $S_{8}$ reacts with 2 moles of $Cl_2$ based on the following unbalanced equation?

$$S_{8}(s)\ +\ Cl_{2}(g)\rightarrow S_{2}Cl_{2}(l)$$

A

$S_{8}$

B

$Cl_{2}$

C

$S_{2}Cl_{2}$

D

There is no limiting reactant as both reactants will react completely.
