Answer the following questions in brief.

Which agent is responsible for formation of stalactites and stalagmites and where are they formed?

Answer :

Water from the end of the stalactite leaves more calcite in a pile on the cave floor, and pretty soon a cone-like stalagmite forms.


That's why stalactites and stalagmites are usually formed in pairs. Sometimes they grow together to form a pillar or column


They are formed in the Bora caves of Vishakhapatnam district in Andhra Pradesh and this is considered as one of the major limestone caves in India
