Correct Answer: (b) water table

Explanation: On digging a deep hole in the ground, the soil below is moist. This shows the presence of water under the ground. If we go on digging deeper and deeper we will reach the level where all the spaces between the soil particles and the gaps between rocks are filled with water. The upper limit of this layer is known as the water table. This water table varies from place to place.
