Correct option is (a) Cycle

Best explanation: A thermodynamic cycle is a process with identical end states. A thermodynamic path is series of states or the path through which a system passes from an initial state of equilibrium to a final state of equilibrium. Phase is a quantity of matter that can be separated mechanically from a heterogeneous mixture.
