It acts as a natural boundary, collecting rainfall and runoff, which then flows into a common outlet such as a river or lake. Watersheds are essential for managing water resources and understanding the movement of water within a particular geographical area. They play a crucial role in maintaining the health and quality of the water bodies they drain into.

    Explanation
    A watershed is also referred to as a catchment basin because it is an area of land where all the water from rain or snowmelt drains into a common water body such as a river, lake, or ocean. The catchment basin collects and channels the water, preventing it from spreading out and ensuring that it flows towards a specific water body. This term accurately describes the function and purpose of a watershed, making it the correct answer.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "robots" because a watershed is an area of land where all the water drains into a common point, such as a river or lake. It is responsible for collecting and channeling water resources, which are essential for the survival of various ecosystems. Forests, grasslands, and marshes are examples of natural habitats that can be found within a watershed, as they play a crucial role in maintaining water quality and regulating the water cycle. However, robots are not a natural component of a watershed ecosystem and do not contribute to its ecological functions.
