Your Answer
D
Choes are perennial streams that originate in the slopes of Shiwaliks and enter the alluvial plains.

Solution

The correct option is C Choes are seasonal or ephemeral streams or torrents that originate in the slopes of Shiwaliks and enter the alluvial plains.
The Shiwaliks are prone to gully erosion due to the seasonal riveulets that dissects the fields. These rapidly flowing ephemeral streams flow almost at an interval of every kilometre. These streams are known by a local name. They are called choes. They originate in the Shiwaliks and finally move into the plains.
