The correct option is (a) True

The explanation: The rivers carrying little sediment load can be corrected by properly placed impermeable spears or jetties. When the rivers carry heavy sediment load, it can be corrected by permeable spurs called sal-Balli spurs driven at some suitable distance center to center in rows across the river currents. This slows down the current and promotes silting in the dyked area.
