. Lentils and other pulses grow well in __________ soils, which drain water easily.

(a) Loamy              

(b) Clayey              

(c) Sandy               

(d) None of the above


Best Answer

The Correct Option is (a)     

Explanation: Loamy soil as the topsoil is most favorable for most kinds of vegetation including pulses and lentils. It has the right amount of ratio between sandy, clayey and another soil called silt. The sandy soil is well aerated as it has the bigger particles which cannot fit together and thus can’t hold water. While the clayey soil has good water retention capacity as it has fine particles which fit close together. This makes loamy soil well aerated as well as having the right water holding capacity and most suitable to grow vegetation.
