Low tensile and high compressive strength

# A material with a low tensile strength and high compressive strength can be described as which of the following?
A. Ductile
B. Malleable
C. Resilient
D. Brittle
E. Tough

The correct answer is D. Brittle. 

Brittle materials can be hard solid materials
that can withstand heavy compression but
not tension.

Brittle materials exhibit low tensile strength and may fracture or break instead of being deformed when under tensile stress.

Ductile materials exhibit high tensile
strength and low compressive strength,
making them capable of being drawn into
