transported soil different from Residual soil because it has been moved from another location...
C. It has been moved from another location.
Residual soil is that which has been formed by the weathering of the rocks in the same place where it is located, with a virtually zero displacement of the particles, while the transported soil is that which forms a loose mantle, resulting from the disintegration or decomposition of the rocks. Since it is an unconsolidated mantle, its products are transported by water, wind or ice.
I have written your answer on my computer and took a photo here it is!!
It forms on unconsolidated materials.
Penn Foster's answer
Residual soil and transported soil differ by as follows:
Residual soil stays over its parent rock and transported soil forms from particles from another place.
Soil forms from weathering of rock. When a rocks get weathered it creates small paiticles. That forms different kind of soil. Soil varies in texture, structure, colour, composition and in pH level. Each and every soil type produced from parent rock. Depending upon the character of parent rock soil type is determined like basalt the igneous rock forms black soil.
Residual soil stays over parent rock it does not get off by the activities of natural agents like air, water, wind and glacier. Transported soil comes from hilly area to flat topped ground by transportation through some transporting agents of nature. It is immature soil.
