Best Answer

The correct option of this question is (c).

Explain : Under alkaline conditions of the reagent, fructose gets converted into a mixture of glucose and mannose (Lobry de Bruyn van Ekenstein rearrangement) both of which contain the -CHO group and hence, reduce Tollens' reagent to give silver mirror test.
