Solution

The correct option is C condensation
Condensation refers to the conversion of a gas into liquid, when it is cooled down. After a hot shower, the hot steam (water vapour) in the bathroom cools down and condenses as tiny liquid water droplets on the surface of the mirror in the bathroom. This condensed water vapour causes the mirror to appear foggy.
