Pick up the incorrect statement from the following :

A. The rate of flow of water through a unit cross-sectional area under a unit hydraulic gradient, is called coefficient of permeability
B. The rate of flow of water through a vertical strip of the acquifer of unit width and full depth under a unit hydraulic gradient, is called coefficient of transmissibility
C. The flow of water through acquifers, is governed by the Darcy's law
D. The term 'transmissibility' was introduced by Meinzer
E. The ratio of coefficient of transmissibility and coefficient of permeability, is equal to the depth of acquifer through which water flows.
