The correct answer is:

$$\mathrm{HNO}_3 + \mathrm{H}_2\mathrm{O} \text{ solution}$$

Explanation: The mixture of $\mathrm{HNO}_3$ (Nitric Acid) and $\mathrm{H}_2\mathrm{O}$ (Water) is known to form a solute-solvent interaction that results in a high boiling solution. This implies that among the given options, this mixture exhibits the highest boiling point due to the strong interaction between the molecules of $\mathrm{HNO}_3$ and $\mathrm{H}_2\mathrm{O}$, which requires more energy (in the form of heat) to break the intermolecular forces and hence, will have a higher boiling point.
