What is diffusion?

Diffusion is the phenomenal in which molecules of a particle move from the region of high concentration to low concentration until it is evenly distributed.

How come that the droplets undergo TIR while refracting lights?

Hapil said: (Nov 22, 2016)  
According to me, the answer should be option A.

No answer is correct. Rainbow is caused by 3 phenomenons

1. dispersion
2. refraction
3. internal reflection

Here, the first option is diffusion (it's not correct).

Rainbow is caused due total internal reflection. How can it be caused due to diffusion?
