Define Duars and Terai.

Answer:

Daurs

The Daurs are floodplains in the region around the Himalayas, in the state of Assam in the north-east and in the north of West Bengal. The altitude of daur typically varies from one area to the other but usually, the minimum is 90 m and the maximum is 1750 m. The daurs are floodplains, so the mechanism by which it is produced consists of the materials that are deposited on the edges of the rivers during a flood.

Terai

At the foot of mountains at the foot of the Himalayas in North India, the Terai are belts of marshy land.
