Correct option is
B

Sea

During, the daytime when the air above the land gets heated up, the air molecules absorbs the heat and the intermolecular forces between the air molecules become weak and its kinetic energy increases. The air molecules move apart and become less dense and they become lighter and rises up. This creates a low-pressure zone on land and thus cold air from the sea rushes from sea to land and thus creates sea breeze.
So, the correct answer is option B.
