    Answer: A. If the surface aquifer has a high water table

    Explanation:

    The water table refers to the water level underground. If it is high, it means that the water underground is close to the surface such that if a well was dug, it would not need to be dug too far for water to be seen.

    When heavy rain falls, flooding is avoided if the water is either able to run off efficiently or if the ground is able to absorb the water. When the water table is high, it means that the ground will not be able to absorb much because the water is already close to the surface which means that should heavy rain fall, there will most likely be a flood.
