What are the leaves of my Zinnia plants shrinking and drooping although the soil is moist?

They were good a week ago..but the condition is not improving now.. I have the same plants in 2 more pots but they are okay.

It sounds like they are a bit too moist. They need to dry out between waterings. In fact, they prefer dryer soils once they are mature.

Be sure to let them dry out a little between watering, and treat with a fungicide.

It looks like you are using topsoil in your container. This doesn’t work well for many plants; consequently, potting mix (no soil included) leads to much better growth.
