Correct option is A)
The semi colon represents a longer pause than comma. It is used to separate clauses which are loosely connected in thought. As, the given sentence consists of clauses that are not strongly connected., a semi colon must be used to link them. Thus, the correct answer is Option A.
Option B - An ellipsis is used to represent a trailing of thought.
Option C - A comma is used before a conjunction that joins two independent clauses.
Option D - A colon is used between sentences grammatically correct but closely related.
