It is the only river in India that flows in a rift valley flowing west between the Satpura and Vindhya ranges although the Tapti River and Mahi River also flow through rift valleys but between different ranges. It flows through the states of Madhya Pradesh (1,077 km (669.2 mi)), Maharashtra, (74 km (46.0 mi))– (35 km (21.7 mi)) border between Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra and (39 km (24.2 mi) border between Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat and in Gujarat (161 km (100.0 mi)).[2]

      thanks 4 giving answers.
      Some doubt:-
      cold wall :- gulf stream (savinder singh pg 379)
      kalahari :- hottentos and bushmen
      last sign of activeness:- fumaroles (savinder singh pg128)
      hydroelectricity :- canada
      conc of population:- North america so ans shud be (d)none

      • Rohit says:

        yaar ye Kalahari me hottentots hote hai r u confirm any source??

    • geetika says:

      1. sao paulo is 3rd largest urban agglomeration of world and largest of southern hemisphere. so most urbanized country of S. america shouldn’t be brazil ?
      2. Altai mountains is in the region of china, mangolia and lower russia, so can it be warm temperate.
      3. most extensive:- black soil (ncert)

      • karan says:

        most extensive soil is alluvial referred to dictionary of India as well as geography of India by majid Hussein.
        Hottentots are basically from south Africa …San bushman are from Kalahari..
        Canada is second after china i think…
        not too sure about altai though
        after volcanic episode last thing which is left is crater.
        cold wall is Labrador current which is a “cold wall” to warm gulf stream. the line of convergence of gulf stream and Labrador current is called cold wall.since gulf stream is a warm current the cold wall is created by Labrador.

    • geetika says:

      ionosphere comprises D,E and F layer. F layer also known as appleton layer which reflects medium and high frequency waves. higher the frequency shorter the wave.(savinder singh 411-412)
      I opine answer shud be appleton layer.
