### From solid to water is.....

• A.

Sublimation

• B.

Deposition

• C.

Condensation

• D.

Evaproation

C. Condensation
Explanation
Condensation is the process in which a gas or vapor changes into a liquid. In this case, the question is asking about the change from a solid to water, indicating that the solid is being converted into a liquid form. Sublimation refers to the direct change from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid phase. Deposition is the reverse process of sublimation, where a gas changes directly into a solid. Evaporation refers to the change from a liquid to a gas. Therefore, the correct answer is condensation.

The point in the orbit where the earth is farthest from the sun is called aphelion, and it occurs in July. In contrast, perihelion, the point where the earth is closest to the sun, occurs in January.
