Angle of internal friction is dependent to normal stress (resultant) and the friction. So the dense sand has maximum normal stress and friction is also more due to which B is the right answer. Correct me if I am wrong.

Becoz angular grained soil will have more packing efficiency so it will have more internal friction.

It is least for clay and max for angular grained dense sand.
