Answer: A. onomatopoeia

The word “fizz” is an example of onomatopoeia. Onomatopoeia is a word that resembles the sound it makes. We tend to hear those sounds instead of the actual word when we read. Some examples of onomatopoeia include babble, splash, warble, mumble, etc. Fizz is the sound of effervescence made when a liquid produces bubbles of gas to make a hissing sound.
