Question

The given image is of__________.

  1. Plucking
  2. Sculpture
  3. Abrasion
  4. None of these

hintHint:

It is important for weathering.

The correct answer is: Abrasion


    The correct option is c) Abrasion.
    Abrasion is another form of mechanical weathering. In abrasion, one stone collides with another. As rocks fall from hillsides and cliffs, gravitational wear occurs. As you move through the water, wear occurs as the particles in the water collide and collide with each other.
    Strong winds carrying sand particles can sandblast the surface. Glacial ice carries many rocks. The rock embedded in the bottom of the glacier wears away the underlying rock. Abrasion smooths and rounds stones with sharp or jagged edges.
