Which of the following should produce a lower uncompacted density assuming specific gravity and gradation are the same?

- Natural Sand: This is an uncrushed, rounded material that is dug naturally from aggregate pits, washed and used ‘as-is’.
- Both should produce the same uncompacted void content.
