|Which of the following is true about river deposition?|
|1. Deposition takes place when a river has insufficient water to transport its load.|
|2. Larger particles are deposited first.|
|3. Deposition will occur when the speed of a river is reduced. Select the correct answer using the codes given below|
A) 1 and 3
B) 2 and 3
C) 1 and 2
D) All of these
Correct Answer: D
Solution :[d] Deposition is the process of eroded material being dropped. This happens when a river loses energy. A river can lose its energy when rainfall reduces, evaporation increases, friction close to river banks and shallow areas which leads to the speed of the river reducing and therefore the energy reduces, when a river has to slow down it reduces its speed (and ability to transport material) and when a river meets the sea.
