A
Increase in temperature of water
loader
B
Decrease in temperature of water
loader
C
Less exposed surface area of water
loader
D
Adding common salt to water

Solution

The correct option is C Increase in temperature of water
As the temperature of the water increases, the kinetic energy increases. As a result, the force of attraction between the molecules decreases, and the molecules become more and more separated.  

Thus, increasing the temperature of a body of water also often increases evaporation. This is because as the temperature rises, the water molecules begin moving about more rapidly and will finally escape.
