      Rain

      Earthquake

    • D.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    B. Rain
    Explanation
    Floods occur due to heavy rain when the amount of rainfall exceeds the capacity of the land to absorb it. When the ground becomes saturated, the excess water flows over the surface, causing rivers and streams to overflow their banks and inundating surrounding areas. Heavy rain can lead to flash floods, river floods, and urban flooding, causing significant damage to infrastructure, homes, and loss of life. Therefore, heavy rain is the most likely cause of floods.

    Floods due to heavy rainfall

    • A.

    Explanation
    Floods can indeed occur due to heavy rainfall. When there is excessive rainfall, the ground becomes saturated and unable to absorb all the water, leading to surface runoff and overflowing rivers and streams.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False
