Correct option is
A

An element which can readily accept an electron is a good oxidising agent. Halogens are good oxidising agents because they have strong tendency to accept an electron due to small atomic size, high electronegativity and  high electron affinity. Fluorine, being smallest, is best oxidising agent.
