How many of the statements given above are correct?
(a) Only one
(b) Only two
(c) All three
- Jhelum River passes through Wular Lake.
- This statement is correct. The Jhelum River does pass through the Wular Lake, which is the largest freshwater lake in India. The lake acts as a natural flood storage basin for the Jhelum River.
- Krishna River directly feeds Kolleru Lake.
- This statement is incorrect. The Krishna River does not directly feed the Kolleru Lake. The lake is primarily fed by water from the Godavari River and its tributaries, including the Tammileru and Budameru streams.
- Meandering of Gandak River formed Kanwar Lake.
- This statement is incorrect. The formation of Kanwar Lake is not primarily due to the meandering of the Gandak River. Kanwar Lake is a oxbow lake formed by the changing course of the Sone River, a tributary of the Ganges.
Therefore, out of the given statements, only one (Statement 1) is correct. The correct answer is (a) Only one.
