  • 6. 

    Mountains are capped with ______________ from top.

    Correct Answer
    snow
    Explanation
    Mountains are capped with snow from top because as the altitude increases, the temperature decreases. This drop in temperature causes the moisture in the air to condense and freeze, resulting in the formation of snow. Since mountains are usually higher in elevation, they are more likely to experience colder temperatures, making them ideal for snow to accumulate and cap their peaks.
