9% of a soil is retained on No. 4 sieve, and 11 % passes the No. 200 sieve. It is also known that 10%, 30%. and 60% of the soil is smaller than 0.1 mm. 0.8 mm. and 1.9 mm, respectively. When Atterberg limit tests are conducted, it is found that the liquid limit is 32% and the plastic limit is 27%. Classify this soil according to the Unified soil classification system and give group symbol and group name.
