The saltiest ocean from the given choices is letter A or Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic Ocean is much saltier than the Pacific, Indian and Arctic Oceans because of several reasons: It may either be because of the water vapor transport which is carried by the trade winds across the Isthmus of Central America.

It is also probably because some of the water evaporates from the Atlantic Ocean and is then carried into other oceans – because of this process, other oceans become fresher while the Atlantic Ocean becomes saltier from constantly losing fresh water. Although the Atlantic Ocean is saltier than other oceans, please remember that the oceans compensate each other through the process called interocean exchange – other oceans bring back freshwater to the Atlantic.
