Answer :

Lakshadweep Islands are made up of corals, and have fringing coral reefs very close to their shores. Corals are the skeletons of tiny marine animals called ‘polyps’. When these living polyps die, other polyps grow on top of their hard skeletons. They grow higher and higher and thus form coral reefs.


Additional Information: The Lakshadweep islands are located off the coast of Kerala, having an area of about 32 sq. km.
