Plants play a major role in controlling flood and air pollution.
(i) The roots bind the soil particles and prevent the soil from getting eroded.
(ii) The leaves of green plants synthesize food from carbon dioxide present in atmosphere and release oxygen in the atmosphere. Thus, plants tend to maintain the $C{{O}{2}}$
and ${{O}
{2}}$ balance in the atmospher Hence, green plants play major role in controlling flood and air pollution
