Silty clay loam should contain highest percentage of clay and not silt. Hence B can't be true.

Loam-mixture of sand silt clay of approx equal proportion.

Sandy clay loam: 20 to 35 per cent clay, less than 28 per cent silt, and 45 per cent or more sand.

Silty clay loam: 27 to 40 per cent clay and less than 20 per cent sand.

It's all of the above.

Loam means equal percentage of sand silt and clay fraction. So loam is not correct. Option C is stiff boulder clay it may be rite but the boulder is not clay. I think the correct answer is option D.
