Hint: In this question, we have to identify that option which describes the repulsion force between two which have the same type of property. This property may be either the same pole (in magnetism) or the same charges (in electrostatic).

Two particles feel a repulsion force when they are having the same property.
There are two types of charges which are positive charge and negative charge.
So, when two same types of charges come closer to each other then they both feel a repulsion force.
The same can be observed from the below figure:

Hence, when two positively or two negatively charged particles come closer to each other then they repel from each other, then it is known as electrostatic repulsion.

Therefore, option (A) is correct.
