B
Key Concept
Basicity in Aqueous Solution
Explanation
Among the given options, OH\mathrm{OH}^{-} is the strongest base in aqueous solution because it readily accepts a proton to form water, which is a very stable molecule. The other anions are less basic due to their lower tendency to accept protons compared to OH\mathrm{OH}^{-}.
