Among the options provided, sugarcane is generally considered to be the least water-efficient crop. Sugarcane is a high-water-demanding crop that requires a significant amount of water for its growth and development. It has a relatively high water consumption rate compared to other crops, making it less water-efficient.

On the other hand, sunflower, pearl millet, and red gram are relatively more water-efficient crops compared to sugarcane. These crops have adaptations that allow them to thrive in semi-arid conditions and require less water for their growth. However, among the options given, sugarcane stands out as the least water-efficient crop.
