The correct answer is d. metamorphic rock.When an already existing and well-formed of sedimentary rocks that are exposed to high temperatures and high pressures, generally at depth in the soil, it gradually transforms into overtime on a particular type of metamorphic rock. This occurs due to the high temperature and pressure contribute to a change in the crystal structure, and may also result from the fusion of different types of rocks in a specific type of rock, which will contribute to the formation of a metamorphic rock as well.
