Which one of the following oceans currents is called Gulf Stream of the Pacific ?
(A) Oyashio (B) Kuroshio (C) Aleutian (D) Kurile
A stream is confined within a definite channel incised into the surface of the land, with a distinctive
pattern and cross-section, which varies from source to mouth and changes its form as the drainage
system develops. In order to introduce some defintiveness, a distinctive if somewhat obvious
terminology has been developed, mainly by civil engineers. The depth and width of the water
measured from bank to bank (the margin of the channel) are not always easy to specify, since unless
the stream has been regularized for flood control, navigation or power production the cross-section
is rarely a distinct rectangle; a mean depth is commonly used. Their relationship is expressed as the
form
ratio
, an expression derived from depth/width, as 1 : 50
where the width is 50m (150 ft), the
mean depth 1 m (3 ft). Sometimes the banks are clear-cut and well defined, at other places uneven
beds of sand and shingle may slope gradually from the water?s edge, which itself fluctuates. The
term
wetted perimeter
denotes the length from bank to bank of the section in contact with the stream,
and the
cross-sectional area
is, as its name would imply, the area of a cross- section of the water at any
particular point. Another relationship, important because it is a guide to the amount of friction
between the water and the channel, and therefore an indication of energy loss, is the
hydraulic
radius
,
the cross-sectional area divided by the wetted perimeter. A low hydraulic radius, where a shallow
stream occupies a very wide channel, is the least efficient in energy terms.
The
base-flow
of a river is that portion of its volume contributed by ground-water inflow; this
fluctuates during the year with the general water-table, but will not occupy the entire channel. When
surface or overland-flow increases after rain or snow-melt, the depth will of course increase. When
it just occupies the entire channel, it is at
bankfull stage
, beyond which it may rise to the
flood (or
overbank)
stage,
when it overspills the banks.
Read the above passage carefully and choose the correct answers to the following questions.

(A) When the river takes a new course during a flood
