Solution

The correct option is A surface tension in drop
Surface tension is due to cohesive force between water molecules.


This surface tension has a tendency to minimize the surface area by contracting surfaces by applying cohesive force. Thus, water tries to occupy smaller areas. Smallest possible area is in the shape of a sphere for a given volume. Therefore, rain drops are in spherical shape.
