Soil that forms on unconsolidated deposits is called _____.?

a bedrock

Transported soil is the only one that makes sense. The soil itself was not transported, but the parent material was.
A residual soil is one that forms when bedrock breaks down in place, and the results of the physical and chemical breakdown of rock are not transported away by wind, water or glaciers.
It’s clearly not bedrock or humus.
