Solution

The correct option is C

Both A and B.


Sowing seeds deep in the soil is practiced diligently as deeper levels of soil have relatively higher moisture than the surface soil. This prevents germination discrepancies owing to improper moisture conditions. Also, surface seeds are at high risks to be picked off by birds and rodents. Thus, sowing seeds deep prevents damages caused by preying agents.
