VII. Give reasons for the following
1. Eastern Ghats are not a continuous range.
The Eastern Ghats are dissected at many places by the rivers,
which drain into the Bay of Bengal. So the Eastern Ghats are not a continuous range.
2. Tamil Nadu receives low rainfall during southwest monsoon.
Since Tamil Nadu is located in the rain shadow region of the
southwest monsoon wind which blows from the Arabian sea, Tamil Nadu receives
low rainfall during southwest monsoon.
3. Cuddalore is a multiprone disaster zone.
Cuddalore is one of the most flood prone districts of Tamil
Nadu. It is also one of the cyclone prone districts. Cuddalore has also been
affected by Tsunami once. Minor damages had been caused in Cuddalore in 2011
owing to earthquake. Thus Cuddalore is a multipurpose disaster zone.
