Question

Deforestation to a large extent can lead to 
  1. destruction of wildlife
  2. flooding during rainy season
  3. air pollution
  4. soil erosion during rainy season


Solution

The correct options are
A destruction of wildlife
B flooding during rainy season
D soil erosion during rainy season
Deforestation refers to the clearing of trees, transforming a forest into cleared land which directly leads to loss of wildlife habitat.

Due to the loss of trees, the top fertile soil gets washed away during rains and it can also cause flood in highly deforested land.

Deforestation plays several roles in flooding because trees prevent sediment runoff and forests hold the soil in place, reducing the movement of sediments that can shrink river channels downstream.
