A "fuzzy cloud" around the nucleus of an atom where an electron is likely to be found will be called an orbital. Option A.

What are orbitals?

Orbitals are regions within the atom where electrons can be found.

A typical electron contains electrons that are negatively charged, protons that are positively charged, and neutrons that have no charges.

The positively charged protons and neutral neutrons form the core or the nucleus of the atom. The electrons, on the other hand, are located outside the nucleus.

The regions where electrons of atoms are located are collectively called orbitals.
