Correct option is
A

physical change

Mixing salt or common salt with water results in a change in its physical state. Sugar and salt are solids. When added to water, they get dissolved and we can not see the solid particles anymore. But this does not change the nature of these substances, that is, no new substances are formed during the process. So, the dissolution of salt or sugar in water is a physical change.
