The atomic number of Oxygen is 8 . Atomic number shows us the no of protons. In an atom the no. of protons are equal to the no, of electrons. So oxygen is having 8 electrons and 8 protons. Mass number of an element shows the no.of protons + no. of neutrons right? Oxygen's mass number would be 16 We already know the no. of protons that is 8 so 16-8 would be the no. of neutrons. So The answer would be A !
