    Which of the following peninsular rivers receives rainfall both from the south-west monsoon and north-east monsoon and has more regular flow of water throughout the year than the remaining rivers?

    A)  Mahanadi        

    B)  Godavari

    C)  Krishna

    D)  Kaveri

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] The Kaveri river has the unique locational advantage in the sense that its upper catchment area receives rainfall during summer by the south-west monsoon and the lower catchment area during winter season by the retreating north-east monsoon. It is therefore almost a perennial river with comparatively less fluctuations in flow and is very useful for irrigation and hydroelectric power generation. Thus the Kaveri is the best regulated rivers of South India.
