**Answer: c) Semi-infinite**

Explanation:• The soil’s semi-infinite condition is the assumption of the Boussinesq equation & it occurs when one of the dimensions extends to infinity.

• Let’s consider that the XY plane is the ground surface & the z-axis is a depth, then that condition is described as a semi-infinite.
