AS the peat found in the lowest depth of earth considering the other forms of coal, it also have lowest percentage of coal comparing other forms. in other words we can say that they are the yougest fossils

Order of quality of coal:.

Peat, lignite, bitumen, anthracite (best coal as most carbon content due to its long duration under suppression).

Neha said: (Mar 31, 2011)  
Peat contains less than 50% of coal, while others like lignite (65%-75%) , bitumen (85-90%) , anthracite (90-95%).

We remember it as english alphabets a b l p.

Yash said: (Jul 10, 2011)  
Peat is very strong than other.

Rekha Sharma said: (Jul 21, 2011)  
Peat is Very strong Varity than the others.

Chiranjibi said: (Jul 27, 2011)  
Peat under goes less carbonisation as compared ton other types of coal. It contains about 27-40% of carbon content. And due to less pressure & temp effects on plant orign it is visible in peat.

Pawan Kumar Dipak said: (Aug 8, 2011)  
Peat, lignite, betuminus, anthrasite.

Devraj said: (Aug 18, 2011)  
Anthracite (hard coal) contain 92-98% carbon.
Bituminous (house hold coal) contain 60-80% carbon.
Lignite (soft coal) contain 30-40% carbon.
Peat - this is the most inferior quality of coal.

A Das said: (Aug 19, 2011)  
Peat contains less than 50% of coal, while others like lignite (65%-75%) , bitumen (85-90%) , anthracite (90-95%).

Shweta said: (Sep 3, 2011)  
Peat is the hardest form of coal and found in deep region under high suppression.

Gautam said: (Sep 13, 2011)  
Peat - the worst quality of coal.

Divya Singh said: (Oct 8, 2011)  
The answer is peat because - peat is a soft black or brown substance formed in damp areas from decayed plants.

Susmitha said: (Jun 14, 2012)  
Peat is a partially carbonized vegetable matter saturated with water.

Kalpana Sharma said: (Aug 18, 2012)  
Peat is formed from the Bryophyta known as Sphagnum which is an aquatic bryophyta and since bryophytes are the earlier known land plants and they form a soft black or brown depositions in damp areas where they grows and with the age they got decayed and form peat hence the Sphagnum is also known as "Peat Moss"

Mateen said: (Sep 29, 2012)  
As peat is the first level of formation of vegetable matter or remains of plants which is found in the underlying layers of earth. Because of underlying substances it creates pressure and heat result in the formation of coal after many years.

Gauri said: (Dec 6, 2012)  
The peat is the uppermost layer of coal, it is a soft layer consisting of dead plants and animals. The second layer of coal is lignite it has a high moisture content and carbon content of 25%-35%.The next layer is the bitumen, which is black in colour. The best quality coal is the anthracite it has got about 85%-95% of carbon content.

Ram Chandra said: (Jan 1, 2013)  
The peat is a soft coal. Peat a soft black.

Gaurav Singh said: (Jan 22, 2013)  
Peat is the high quality coal present in mental part of the earth.

Ratan said: (Feb 6, 2013)  
Peat is present in most hard form or soft form on the earth?

Deepak said: (Aug 22, 2013)  
We remember it as english alphabets a b l p.

Anou said: (Sep 13, 2013)  
How does the line "the deposit contains recognizable traces of the original plant material" tell us that d answer is peat?

Anirudh said: (Oct 26, 2013)  
Peat is the primary occurrence of coal.

So peat deposit contains recognizable traces of original plant material.

Nitish said: (Jan 11, 2014)  
Peat contains very little amount of carbon.

Vinay said: (Feb 2, 2014)  
Anthracite contain 95-96%, bitumen contain 50-60%, lignite contain 25-30% coal but peat contain a very few amount of coal and other volume contain a unwanted part of tree.

Bitu said: (Feb 5, 2014)  
Peat is the first stage of carbonization. It is decomposed plant matter and thus the original plant material may be found.

Bipasha Pandya said: (Feb 9, 2014)  
Because peat is the uppermost layer of coal layers, the plant matters are mostly found in it!

Hilal Shaikh said: (Feb 18, 2014)  
During carbonization that part of wood which remains in a low pressure because remained at the top most layer remains uncarbonized 1, e not properly undergoes the process of carbonization and hence the traces of wood remain in their original state.

H Surya Shashank Sekhar said: (Apr 5, 2014)  
Peat is the rawest form coal and is freshly extracted. Therefore, It may have traces of original material.

Samy said: (May 30, 2014)  
Partially carbonized vegetable matter saturated with water; can be used as a fuel when dried.

Chandresh Kashyap said: (Aug 4, 2014)  
We can get this (peat coal) very easily of more than other's.

Daktar Mahar said: (Aug 11, 2014)  
Because peat is the uppermost layer of coal layers, the plant matters are mostly found in it!

Maha said: (Aug 24, 2014)  
Peat found in lowest depth of earth considering other forms of coal.

Kartikeswar Rana said: (Aug 26, 2014)  
Peat coal has lowest carbon percentage.

Karthik said: (Jan 28, 2015)  
Because peat is the initial stage of the formation of coal so obviously peat can contain recognizable traces of plants and any dead remains.

Tulasi said: (Feb 14, 2015)  
Peat is the lowest of earth in other words of coal. Because of order in peat etc.

Rakhshi said: (Apr 23, 2016)  
Is Peat on its way of becoming lignite or it is beginning from?

Ramandeep Singh said: (May 13, 2016)  
Peat is the most inferior quality of coal and it will turn into lignite coal over geologic periods of time.

Jack said: (Nov 29, 2016)  
Peat is not harder it is the worst form of coal with low carbon content.

Ankur said: (Jan 8, 2017)  
Peat only contains 11% of carbon which is the worst type of coal.

Aanchal said: (Jan 11, 2017)  
Peat is formed at the last level of coal formation so it's worse.

Shubham Agrawal said: (Feb 16, 2017)  
As peat coal has the lowest amount of carbon, therefore it shows the traces of plants from which it has got.

Jana said: (Aug 10, 2017)  
Peat is found under a huge pressure under earth crust.

So it is the last level of coal formation.

Shivesh said: (Oct 18, 2017)  
It would be D.

Archangel Micheal said: (Dec 25, 2017)  
Anthracite is correct.

Basir said: (Feb 5, 2019)  
Peat is low carbon containing material( <50%).
