    Answer:

    The correct answer is we see a Spring tide just after a full moon or no moon phase i.e. twice each lunar month.

    Explanation:

    A spring tide is popularly known as the “King Tide”. As the name suggest, it has nothing to do with the season of spring. It gets its name from the idea of “springing forth”. During a spring tide, the tidal range i.e. the difference between high and low water, is maximum. This happens when sun and the moon are on the same side of the earth (new moon) as well as when sun and moon are on the opposite side of the earth (full moon).
