The correct option is (a) Low pH

For explanation: The property of acidic soils is low pH, high soil shows the alkalinity, texture which helps to determine the texture of the soil or the type of the soil if it is acidic or not. Whereas, color does not help to determine whether the soil is acidic or not.
