As the solute does not make any of chemical bond to the inert support but the solute that is to be separated is gonna be form weak forces on the interface of surface and mobile phase so it is defined as adsorption chromatography.

I don't understand explain the answer more, please.

No, it is a partition chromatography.

Could you please provide the relationship of adsorption and layer chromatography?

Answer is not clear to me. Please explain in detail.

It should be partition chromatography.

Thin layer chromatography (TLC) is another type of adsorption chromatography , which invovles seperation of substances of a mixture over a thin layer of an adsorbent coated on glass plate . A thin layer (about 0.2 mm thick) of an adsorbent ( silica gel or alumina ) is spread over glass plate of suitable size .
