Soil is formed by water.” If you agree to this statement then give reasons for your answer.
Water helps in formation of soil in the following ways:
- Water wears off the rocks over a long period of time.
- Small rocks in the flowing water rub against other rocks creating small particles which are carried away downstream and deposited as soil.
- Water expands on freezing. So when it is deposited in crevices of rocks, rocks crack into smaller pieces.
