Question

What type of soil is used by idol makers and why?  [2 MARKS]


Solution

Soil type: 1 Mark
Reason: 1 Mark

Idol makers use rich clayey soil mixed with alluvial soil.
Clayey soil retains moisture and becomes very sticky when wet. It becomes easy for the sculptors to carve out idols using this soil. Furthermore when dry, clayey soil becomes so hard that baking becomes redundant.
