Answer :

The landforms due to the river works are mentioned below:

1.WATERFALL: A waterfall is formed when there is a change of rock type from a highly resistant rock to a less resistant rock, on the course of the river leading to erosion.


2. V- SHAPED VALLEY: A valley is a portion formed between two mountains. formed due to the erosion by river and weathering.


3. MEANDERS: A meander is formed due to the general turns or bends in a river.


4. OXBOW LAKES: An oxbow lake is formed from a meander. When the deposits near a meander increases, the loops tend to come closer. Eventually, this loop cuts off from the river and forms its own lake called the oxbow lake.


5. GORGE: A gorge is formed when a river cuts down a valley with steep sides. For example, the Byson Gorge in Andhra Pradesh and Indus Gorge in Kashmir.


6. CANYON: A canyon is as deep as a gorge but is wider at the top than at the bottom.


7. DELTA: A delta is a depositional landform at the point where a river reaches the sea.


Other landforms formed by river work are leeves, floodplains and braided channel.
