In homogenous soil, each slices contain the same property. And a single slice is enough to analyse the all slices property.

No, it isused for stratified soil and non homogenous. Ref: Arora book.

The answer is all the above.

Vertical slides are taken for slopes stability analysis.

For that soil must be homogenous.

ANS is (E) The Swedish circle method, also known as the method of slices, is a general method, which is equally applicable to homogeneous soils, stratified soils, fully or partially submerged soils, non-uniform soils, and for cases where seepage and pore pressure exist within the soil slope.

Swedish circle method - homogeneous soils, stratified soils, fully or partially submerged soils, non-uniform slopes, with or without seepage.
