Correct option is A)

Sound waves are mechanical waves. Unlike electromagnetic waves, they require a medium to propagate.
Sound cannot travel through a vacuum. A vacuum is an area without any air, like space. So sound cannot travel through space because there is no matter for the vibrations to work on it.
