- b) Sensitivity
- d) Thixotropy

Answer: b) Sensitivity
- The ratio of peak to the remolded shear strength is the soil’s sensitivity.
- The range of sensitivity is 1 to 16.
- The value of sensitivity is 1 for the insensitive type of soil.
- When the value of soil sensitivity above 16, then it is termed ‘quick clay.’
