Which type of drainage pattern is formed when the river channel follows the slope of the terrain?


ANSWER

Dendritic


SOLUTION
The Dendritic pattern develops where the river channel follows the slope of the terrain. The stream with its tributaries resembles the braches of a tree, thus the name dendritic.
A river Joined by its tributaries, at approximately right angles, develops a trellis pattern. A trellis drainage pattern develops where hard and soft rocks exist parallel to each other.
A rectangular drainage pattern develops on a strongly jointed rocky terrain. The radial pattern develops when streams flow in different directions from a central peak or dome like Structure.
Hence, option $$D$$ is the correct answer.
