Please help me solve the problem below. The solution that I have does not make sense to me.


Laboratory tests on a soil sample generated the following results:
Sieve # % Passing
#4 90
#10 81
# 20 70
#40 60
#100 30
#200 10
Liquid Limit 26
Plastic Limit 18


According to the Unified Soil Classification System, the classification of this soil sample is most nearly:
A) SW‐SM
B.) SP‐SC
C) SP‐SM
D) SW‐SC
