A) Dal lake is the remnant of a post-glacial lake or old flood spill channel or ox-bows of the Jhelum river
B) Tso-Moriri is the largest fresh water lake of India
C) Chilika lake is the largest lagoon in the world
D) Chilika lake is an example of transform fault
Correct Answer: A
Solution :[a] Two theories for the formation of the lake have been formulated, one version is that, it is the remnants of a post-glacial lake, which has undergone drastic changes in size over the years and the other theory is that, it is of fluvial origin from old flood spill channel or ox-bows of the Jhelum river. Tso-Moriri is the fresh water lake in Jammu and Kashmir. It is not the largest fresh water lake in India. Chilika lake is the second largest lagoon in the world. Chilika lake is not an example of transform fault, but it is the result of coastal deposition.
