Solution

The correct option is B Seepage springs

Seepage or filtration spring: The term seep refers to springs with small flow rates in which the source water has filtered through permeable earth.

Seeps are usually not of sufficient volume to be flowing beyond their above-ground location. Like a higher volume spring, the water is only from underground sources. Seeps mostly occur in lower elevation areas because water runs downhill, but can happen higher up if the groundwater present is abundant enough.
