    Why is sediment considered soil under water?
    • A. 

      Sediment is considered soil under water because unlike soil on land, sediment is found almost everywhere on the earth's surface, including on the bottom of the oceans and lakes, on river beds.

    • B. 

      Sediment is considered soil underwater because of the rock found under water.

    • C. 

      Sediment is considered soil underwater because it is fine grained.

    • D. 

      Sediment is considered soil underwater because plants organisms can grow in it.
