You can cancel A and B because normal rain is not chemical and no soil is deposited. The difference between physical weathering and erosion is that with weathering, the soil gets broken into fragments. With erosion, there is a flowing agent involved which moves the fragments and deposits them somewhere else. So the answer would be erosion
