Option contract is an agreement between two parties ie buyer and seller. when that contract is made,these two parties are agreeing to buy/sell the mentioned underlying asset ( it can be a stock/index) at the mentioned price(strike price),on a particular day (expiry day).

The option buyer pays a particular amount of money (option premium) to the option seller to make this contract.There is no obligation for the buyer to execute the transaction on expiry day, its optional (hence the name option). While the option seller has the obligation to execute the transaction, if the contract expires as "in the money". If the option expires as Out of the money ie worthless, the option seller gains the full premium.
