Which among the following rivers in India represent superimposed drainage pattern?
1. Narmada
2. Mahanadi
3. Chambal
Choose the correct option from the codes given below:

Answer: [D] Only 3

Narmada, Mahanadi and Son have a radial drainage system. Chambal system represents superimposed drainage pattern. Superimposed drainage is a naturally evolved drainage system that became established on a preexisting surface, now eroded, and whose course is unrelated to the present underlying geological structure. The other examples of superimposed drainage pattern in India are Damodar, Subarnarekha, and Banas river.
