I'd have to say chemical A but that's only my educated guess chemistry wasn't my best subject lol

It's not chemistry, its toxicology.

The most toxic chemical is chemical C. This is because 5g is greater than 60mg and 10 mg by 440mg and 490mg respectively. If you do a conversion, 5g/kg will be equivalent to 5000mg/kg.

The chemical that exhibits toxicity at the lowest dose is Chemical C. Therefore it's the most toxic.

Oops, I Mis-read the question and missed the grams and milligrams. Chemical A has the lowest LD50 dose, so is the most toxic. Sorry.
