Give one or two possible identifications for each of the following. Provide a group symbol and descriptive name for each. It is not necessary to distinguish well-graded from poorly graded soils:

2. When dry, the soil seems to be a dusty sand. When wetted, it is still gritty like sand, but the soil stichs to gether in a ball if compressed in the hand.
