. River beds usually have deposits of

(a)          pebbles.

(b)          sand.

(c)           silt.

(d)          clay.

Best Answer

(c) silt.

Silt is the soil present as deposits in riverbeds. It is formed by the weathering of rocks in the mountains and flows into the rivers. This is the most fertile soil and best suited for the growth of plants as its particles are neither too big to lose all the water nor too small to hold all the water.
