Question

# Q3. Consider the following statements on the basis of forms or shapes of the settlements: 1. Rectangular pattern are found in plain areas or wide inter-montane valleys. 2. T–shaped settlements emerge as the places where two roads converge on the third one and houses are built along these roads. 3. Cruciform settlements extend on both sides of a river where there is a bridge or a ferry. Which of the above statement(s) is/are incorrect?(a) Only 1 and 2            (b) Only 2 and 3 (c) Only 2 (d) None of the above

Solution

## The correct option is B (b) Only 2 and 3 These may be a number of geometrical forms and shapes such as: Rectangular pattern: Such patterns of rural settlements are found in plain areas or wide inter-montane valleys. The roads are rectangular and cut each other at right angles. T –shaped settlements develop at tri-junctions of the roads. Y–shaped settlements emerge as the places where two roads converge on the third one and houses are built along these roads. Cruciform settlements develop on the cross-roads and houses extend in all the four direction. Double village : These settlements extend on both sides of a river where there is a bridge or a ferry
