What is soil?

Open in App
Solution

Mixture of rocks particles, sand and decaying dead matters is known as soil. Soil supports the growth of plants by holding their roots and supplying water to them. Soil is formed by weathering. Weathering is the process of breaking down of rocks by the action of wind, water and climate. Formation of even one inch of soil takes many years.
