A sedimentary rock with only minerals?

In my text book I came across this multiple-choice question>A sedimentary rock consists of only minerals and lacks fossils, it could be classified as:>i) a clastic sedimentary rock>ii) a chemical sedimentary rock>iii) a biochemical sedimentary rockOf course I would exclude "a biochemical", but I am confused between *clastic* and *chemical*. I did some research on google but didn't find a precise answer. However, I found that both of them could contain only minerals.So, I hope someone could help me here!
