    Solution:

    Lattice energy is the energy needed to break one mole of bonds between the cations and anions. 

    High lattice energy denotes high energy is required to break the compound into its constituent ions. 

    The high lattice energy of BaSO4 causes low solubility of BaSO4 in water. 

    Hence A) is the correct option.
