Quiz: How Well Do You Know About Plateaus?

Let’s start the quiz

The plateau is a flat, elevated track usually consisting of relatively flat terrain, and well above the surrounding area. The plateaus are found on every continent and occupy one-third of the Earth's land. Plateaus are formed by several processes, including the rise of volcanic magma, the exit of lava, and erosion by water and glaciers. The plateau is a storehouse of minerals because it represents the ancient gradient of the earth's crust. There are two types of plateaus: Dissected Plateau and Volcanic Plateau. Moving upward in the earth's crust, a dissected plateau is formed and volcanic plateaus are formed by small volcanic eruptions that gradually increase over time, resulting in plateaus from lava flows. The largest and highest plateau in the world is the Tibetan Plateau. So let's start this quiz and know interesting facts about Plateau.
