Complete step by step answer:
A beach is a landform alongside water which consists of loose particles . A beach is typically made from rocks, such as sand, gravel, pebbles and shingle. Biological sources such as mollusk shells or coralline algae are present in beaches and sediments which settle in different densities and structures.
Sandbar also has an offshore bar partly exposed to a ridge of sand or other coarse sediment that is built by waves offshore from a beach. Sandbar has the greatest relief in the storm .
An area of land that extends into a large body of water is called headland and it is often a cliff or other elevated landform overlooking a sea. Headland is formed when softer rock is pushed or eroded inwards and hard rocks stick out in the sea.
 The portion of the land projecting into the sea is called Headland

So, the correct answer is “Option D”.

Note: Student’s cliff is a vertical, rock exposure and cliffs are formed by the processes of erosion and weathering cliffs are commonly present on coasts, mountainous areas, escarpments and along rivers . Cliffs are formed by rock which is resistant to weathering and erosion. Chalk limestone and sedimentary rocks are likely to form cliffs.
