According to me, it is None of them, as they're also cold deserts where it rains very little and snowbound year long, which means arid is not the answer.

Nice @Sundhar. Good explanation.

But you forgot to say about tract.

Tract: It means a section or part.

desert - Arid land with little or no vegetation.

cactus - A succulent plant with a thick, fleshy stem that typically bears spines, lacks leaves, and has brilliantly colored flowers. Cacti are native to arid regions of the New World and are cultivated elsewhere, esp. as houseplants.

oasis - A fertile spot in a desert where water is found.

arid - (of land or a climate) Having little or no rain; too dry or barren to support vegetation.

flat - A level tract of land.

Hope this will help you. Have a nice day!

Arid means a dry piece of land. So, being dry, there can be no cacti or oasis. Ok.
