Solution

The correct option is C Sediments.
A sedimentary rock consists of one or more minerals and is formed as sediments from the evaporation of a saline solution, such as saltwater. Usually, the first evaporite that gets formed from saltwater is calcium, followed by gypsum and then halite. So, when water evaporates, it leaves behind sediments.
