Correct choice is (a) Migration of the dispersed phase of an emulsion

Easy explanation: Creaming is defined as the migration of the dispersed phase of an emulsion, under the influence of buoyancy. It occurs when isolated oil droplets combine where it sinks to the bottom in w/o emulsions or rises to the top of an o/w emulsion.
