Solution

The correct option is B Laterite soil
Laterite soil
Tea is grown in a variety of soils. The best, however, is a light friable loam with porous sub-soil which permits a free percolation of water, for tea is highly intol­erant to stagnant water. In general the most suitable soils are slightly acidic and without calcium.
The presence of iron in sub-soil is desirable. On the sloping land which is most suitable for tea, soil erosion is often a problem. This is combated by planting tea bushes in lines along the contours.
