Question

When two or more glaciers erode a glacier, there is the formation of a sharp and pyramid-shaped mountain called___________.

  1. Moraine
  2. Arete
  3. Glacier
  4. Horn

hintHint:

They are pointed just like -------?

The correct answer is: Horn


    The correct option is d) Horn.
    The horn is formed by the erosion of the clique wall towards the head. When three or more glowing glaciers cut forward until their curls meet, they form high, sharp-edged, steep-sided peaks called horns. A glacier angle is a shape created by a glacier, and the meaning of the word is closely related to its formation.
