A) i only
B) ii only
C) Both i and ii
D) neither i nor ii
Correct Answer: A
Solution :[a] Trellis: In the areas of simple folds characterized by parallel anticlinal ridges alternate by parallel syncline valley. Trellis drainage developed in folded topography like that found in the Appalachian Mountain of North America. It is mainly found in tilted or faulted sediments, such as those in European Alps, and along elongated landforms, such as hill sized, teardrop shaped deposits called drumlins, which are formed by retreating glaciers.
