Hint: Oxone is a yellowish white granular solid compound that offers a non-chlorinated oxidation in a wide variety of applications like
Industrial processing,
Pulp and paper production
Waste water treatment and household cleaning,
Production of oil and gas
Denture cleaning.

A mixture of $N{{a}_{2}}{{O}_{2}}$ and dilute Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is called soda bleach, and commercially known as oxone.
$N{{a}_{2}}{{O}_{2}}$is also called sodium peroxide.
So, the correct answer is “Option C”.

Sodium peroxide is an inorganic compound.
Sodium peroxide can be prepared by the exposure of sodium monoxide to dry oxygen or air.
$\text{2NaO}\xrightarrow{\text{oxygen or dry air}}N{{a}_{2}}{{O}_{2}}$
Sodium peroxide is a strong base.
Boiling point of sodium peroxide is 657$^{o}C$, and melting point is 460$^{o}C$.
It is soluble in acid and insoluble in alkali or in base.
Sodium peroxide is used as an intermediary in the preparation of sodium perborate.
The oxidation number of sodium in $N{{a}_{2}}{{O}_{2}}$ is -1.
Sodium also belongs to the hydrogen family and has a capability to form peroxides just like Hydrogen peroxide (${{H}_{2}}{{O}_{2}}$). The oxidation state of oxygen is -1. So, $N{{a}_{2}}{{O}_{2}}$ is the peroxide ion. Therefore the name of $N{{a}_{2}}{{O}_{2}}$is Sodium Peroxide.
Sodium peroxide is used for specific laboratory purposes for example in the extraction of minerals from several ores.

Note: Sodium peroxide also called with the commercial names Solozone and Flocool.
In chemistry, sodium peroxide is used as an oxidizing agent.
It liberates oxygen by reacting with carbon dioxide and produces oxygen and sodium carbonate as the products.
