What type of drainage is formed when the river channel follows the general slope of the terrain?


ANSWER

Dendritic


SOLUTION
  • In geomorphology, drainage systems, also known as river systems, are the patterns formed by the streams, rivers and lakes in a particular drainage basin.
  • Dendritic drainage systems are the most common form of drainage system. In a dendritic system, there are many contributing streams (analogous to the twigs of a tree), which are then joined together into the tributaries of the main river (the branches and the trunk of the tree, respectively). 
  • They develop where the river channel follows the slope of the terrain.
