Define water cycle. Rearrange the steps of a water cycle to get the correct sequence.  [3 MARKS]

i. Water evaporates from the water reservoirs present on land.
ii. Water exists in the form of water vapours in the atmosphere.
iii. Condensation of the water droplets converts them into clouds.
iv. Rainwater again flows into different forms of water reservoirs on land.
v. When the clouds become big and heavy they fall down as rain.
vi. Water vapours, due to cooling, form droplets using dust particles as nuclei.

Rearrangement : 2 Marks

The continuous movements of water in which water evaporates then falls on the land as rain and later flows back into the sea via rivers is known as the water cycle.

Correct sequence :

i. Water evaporates from the water reservoirs present on land.
ii. Water exists in the form of water vapours in the atmosphere.
vi. Water vapours, due to cooling, form droplets using dust particles as nuclei.
iii. Condensation of the water droplets converts them into clouds.
v. When the clouds become big and heavy they fall down as rain.
iv. Rainwater again flows into different forms of water reservoirs on land.
