    The correct answer is B. "For an hour the old man had been seeing black spots before his eyes and the sweat salted his eyes and salted the cut over his eye and on his forehead."

    Explanation:

    An omniscient narrator also known as god-like narrator is a type of narrator that tells the events from a third person perspective that is mainly objective and has unlimited access to the characters' perspectives, thoughts, feelings, and inner processes and hidden events, this implies omniscient narrator use third-person pronouns such as "he" or "she" and has access to all the events in a story. In the passage, "For an hour the old man had been seeing black spots before his eyes and the sweat salted his eyes and salted the cut over his eye and on his forehead.", what is being described is a personal experience, in this case, an old man seems to be in a dream or hallucination state. As this is only experienced by the old man, the only way for the narrator to know this information is to be an omniscient narrator as this is the only type of narrator that can have access to this type of personal experiences from other characters, additionally the narrator uses third person references such as "the old man" and "his eyes" which implies it has a third-person view which supports the idea of an omniscient narrator as it is objective and has access to the personal experiences of the character.
