Solution

The correct option is D Laterite soil is formed due to the process of Leaching.
<!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}--> Laterite soil is formed in areas with heavy rainfall where the soil’s soluble minerals are leached away by rainwater. Laterite soil is generally poor in nitrogen, lime, potash, phosphorus, magnesium and organic matter. The soil is rich in iron and aluminium oxides; hence it’s acidic and has a red colour.
