Solution

The correct option is A Solution
Many minerals interact with the water or acids in their environment and often form solutions in this process. Minerals in the rock get dissolved slowly by the water and a solution is formed. These dissolved minerals get leached out leaving behind no residue. This process, over a long time, weakens the rock and disintegrates it.
