Question

Passage:
From the apex of the Niger Delta southwards, dry land, overgrown with dense forests still virginal in various spots, gives way to seasonally inundated zones. Here, sweet water swamps with strands of raffia palms gradually merge into tidal swamps of brackish ooze, where mud skippers thrive under the arching roots of mangroves. The Niger, fingering through a thousand creeks, meets the sea in a dozen estuaries. Strong River current drifts and mud across the rivers mouths, sealing them again and again to navigation.
What is brackish ooze?

Options

A) a strong river current

B) a mixture of fresh water and mud

C) a mixture of fresh water and salt water

D) fresh and clear water


The correct answer is C.
