The correct answer is A. The independent variable is the temperature of the water, and the dependent variable is the amount of sugar dissolved. The independent variable is the one that isn't affected by any of the other variables. The dependent variable is the one being studied, measured, and affected in the experiment. Obviously, Eman wants to measure the amount of sugar that dissolves in water.
