Answer

According to general rule, a period is used to mark the end of a complete sentence. Thus, the correct answer will be Option A, no change.
The remaining options are incorrect, as a comma is used to indicate a pause whereas, a semi colon is used to separate major sentence elements. A colon is used to indicate emphasis or introduce a list.
