Solution

River meanders are bends of longitudinal courses. S-shaped meanders which are common to most rivers result when a channel-forms a curved path. These are the result of both erosion and deposition work of rivers.
Meanders generally form under conditions of a gentle slope and sufficient water in rivers. The river flow is diverted by an obstruction allowing the river to do lateral erosion work.
