    Correct option would be (D).Most probably the glacial drift is associated with the sediments carried by the glacier and deposited after transportation. Mainly classified into two types, stratified and unstratified. Best example of unstratified deposits is Till which is a diamictite of glacial origin. Stratified are actually sorted upto some extent but the one related to unstratified deposits are ill sorted or not sorted as they are formed quickly or very less transportation is prevailed. So in all, glacial drift is the general term used specifically for sediments deposited by glacier.
