Answer is A. The efficiency of pile group is always less than 1.

In cohesion, less soil efficiency increases due to increase in base area. While in cohesive soil surface area decreases as we consider pile in a group. Is that the reason for this?

Cohesionless soil:

Cohesive soil <100%

Cohensionless soil means no friction between soil particles so easy to driven then why efficiency less than 100%.
