Property of fluid for bond between fluid particles and other material is due to adhesion property. So, I think it should be (a) adhesion.....I`m not sure...

Actually the non wetting phenomenon which the mercury shows with glass is due to the readon that air-mercury adhesion overcomes the mercury glass adhesion. So amswer should be adhesion.
