Observation

This was not a popular question among the candidates, their performance was fairly good. Most of them could not describe the braided stream well. The expected description should include:

  • a feature of the lower course of a river;
  • rivers break into several channels and later rejoin to slit again;
  • the channels are blocked by deposit of sand bars along the flow of the river;
  • those deposits cause the breaking of the river.
