### Which step in the water cycle creates clouds?

• A.

Evaporation

• B.

Precipitation

• C.

Condensation

• D.

Infiltration

C. Condensation
Explanation
Condensation is the step in the water cycle that creates clouds. During condensation, water vapor in the air cools down and changes back into liquid water. This process occurs when warm air rises and cools at higher altitudes, causing the water vapor to condense around tiny particles in the air, such as dust or pollutants. As the water droplets continue to condense, they form clouds. Therefore, condensation is the correct answer as it explains the formation of clouds in the water cycle.

Condensation

B. Infiltration
Explanation
Infiltration is the process when water soaks into the ground. This occurs when water from precipitation or other sources seeps into the soil and fills the spaces between particles. Infiltration is an important part of the water cycle as it replenishes groundwater, which is stored beneath the Earth's surface. It also helps to prevent runoff, where water flows over the surface and can cause erosion and flooding.
