Solution

The correct option is C
1 and 3 only
Explanation:

Cloud is a mass of minute water droplets or tiny crystals of ice formed by the condensation of the water vapour in free air at considerable elevations

Statement 1 is correct: Cirrus clouds are formed at high altitudes (8,000 - 12,000m). They are thin and detached clouds having a feathery appearance. They are always white in colour.

Statement 2 is incorrect: Cumulus clouds look like cotton wool. They are generally formed at a height of 4,000 - 7,000 m. They exist in patches and can be seen scattered here and there. They have a flat base and cannot be circular in shape.

Statement 3 is correct: Nimbus clouds are black or dark grey. They form at middle levels or very near to the surface. Sometimes, the clouds are so low that they seem to touch the ground. Nimbus clouds are shapeless masses of thick vapour.
