18. Which of the following sequence represent a correct order of soil particles arranged in terms of particle size from smaller to largest?

  • Option : C
  • Explanation : Soil particles are classified by size. The size of the soil particle gives texture to the soil and determines the amount of air and moisture that exists in the soil.
    Clay particles measure less than 0.002 mm. Clay is the smallest type of soil particle.
    Silt particles measure 0.06 mm to 0.002 mm. Silt's particles are larger than clay particles but smaller than sand particles. Sand particles measure 2.0 mm to 0.06 mm. Sand is the largest type of soil particle, and due to its size, allows quick drainage and plenty of airflow.

Courses can be designed for a handful of enrolled students or can be made open and accessible to a wide variety of participants, such as with a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course). So, Assertion (A) is true. However, only the mode of delivery of the course is different here. There is no difference in the learning gains made by the learner as compared to the conventional classroom mode. So, Reason (R) is false.
