How is an easement by prescription created

An easement by prescription is most likely created by:

  1.             a quitclaim deed
  2.             a grant deed
  3.             notorious and open use for 5 years
  4.             none of the above.

The answer is C. An easement by prescription is most likely created by open and notorious use for 5 years. A quitclaim deed can be used to terminate an easement by prescription, and a grant deed has nothing to do with this.
