Consider the following landforms:

  1. U Shaped Valley
  2. V Shaped Valley
  3. Hanging Valley

Which of the above is/are formed by fluvial action?

Answer: [C] 2 Only

V Shaped valley is formed due to fluvial action. U Shaped valley or glacial troughs are formed by the process of glaciations. Similarly, a hanging valley is higher than the main valley; it is formed when a glacier of larger volume overdeepens the U shaped valley.
