Hint: To form a correct sentence, we must keep in mind the general word order, the punctuations and the correct tense of words. Error in any one of these things renders the statement grammatically incorrect. Another thing to be kept in mind is the figure of speech, which includes subject, object, verb, adjective, adverb, gerund etc.

Complete answer:
Let us look into the given options:
Option (A) I need time to solve. – In this statement, all the words are used correctly and is a meaningful and grammatically correct sentences. It means that the subject is asking (verb) for time (object) to solve (secondary-verb). This option is correct.
Option (B) Solving wait. – In this option there are two verbs that are used abruptly. We do not have any subject or object to accompany the verbs. This is an incomplete sentence. Hence, this option is incorrect.
Option (C) Done. More solving. Wait. – This option has three sentences. There are two one-word sentences, ‘Done’ and ‘Wait’. These can be used in this manner, but the second sentence is incorrect. ‘More solving’ has an adverb and a verb but it does not tell us anything about the subject or the object and is an incomplete sentence. This option is also wrong.
Option (D) I am solving for more time – The literal meaning of this sentence is that the subject is solving something in order to get more time, which does not make any relevant sense. The correct sentence should have been, ‘I need more time for solving’. This option is also incorrect.

Thus, the correct answer is Option (A) I need time to solve.

Note: The general word order of a sentence is Subject-Verb-Object. It means that the subject is performing a verb for/to/with an object. For e.g. He went to school. Here, ‘he’ is the subject, ‘went’ is the verb and ‘school’ is the object. These rules and orders of words used for making sentences are called syntax.
