    D)  Anaimalai Hills - Nilgiri Hills - Javadi Hills-Nallamalai Hills

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    [c] Nilgiri hills and Anaimalai hills are a part of Western Ghats. The Middle Sahyadri runs from 160N latitude upto Nilgiri hills in the southward direction. Anaimalai hill is a part of southern section of Sahyadri. It dies to the north of Anaimudi (2695m) which is the highest peak in whole of South India. Whereas Nallamalai range and Javadi hills are a part of Eastern Ghats between the Godavari and Krishna rivers, the Eastern Ghats lose their hilly character and the saddle between these two rivers is occupied by Gondwana formations. The Eastern Ghats reappear as, more or less a continuous hill range in Cuddapah and Kurnool districts of Andhra Pradesh. Here, Nallamalai range (general elevation is 600-850m) is most prominent. To the south of it, hills and plateaus attain very low altitudes. Only Javadi hills and Shevroy-Kalrayan hills form two distinct features of 1000m elevation.
