#2 Which of the following factors affect the origin and movement of current-I. Gravitational force II. Atmospheric pressure and insolation III. Salinity and density of water IV. Direction and shape of coast
An ocean current is a seasonal directed movement of sea water generated by forces acting upon this mean flow, such as wind, the Coriolis effect, breaking waves, cabbing, temperature and salinity differences, while tides are caused by the gravitational pull of the Sun and Moon. Depth contours, shoreline configurations, and interactions with other currents influence a current’s direction and strength. Ocean currents are primarily horizontal water movements.
#3 Which one among the following has the maximum no. of National Parks?
Total number of National Parks in Madhya Pradesh is Nine (9).

To the north-west, it is edged by the Aravalli Mountain Ranges. The plateau extends more to the west, but is intersected by the arenaceous and stony arid region of Rajasthan
