Answer: [A] 1 & 2 Only

The Coral Triangle is a geographical area in the Indo-Pacific region which refers to a roughly triangular area of the tropical marine waters of Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Solomon Islands and Timor. The region is famous for reef-building corals. Cape Whale Coast is a place in the Atlantic Ocean that can easily be called ‘Heaven on Earth’. The Sargasso Sea is a region in the gyre in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. It is the only sea on Earth which has no coastline.
