Solution

Most of the plains are formed by rivers and their tributaries. The rivers flow down the slopes of mountains and erode them. They carry forward the eroded material. Then they deposit their load (consisting of stones, sand, and silt) along with their courses and in their valleys. It is from these deposits that plains are formed.
