A contour line joins locations having the same height above the mean sea level. The following is a contour plot of a geographical region. Contour lines are shown at $25$ m intervals in this plot.

Which of the following is the steepest path leaving from $P$?

- $\text{P to Q}$
- $\text{P to R}$
- $\text{P to S}$
- $\text{P to T}$

Best answer

From the given contour plot of a geographical region, we get

- Height of point P > 575 m
- Height of point R < 425 m
- Height of point Q is in between 475 m to 500 m
- Height of point S is in between 500 m to 525 m
- Height of point T is in between 500 m to 525 m

among PQ, PR, PS and PT the one with largest height difference will be the steepest path.

since R is at lowest height , so path from P to R will be steepest path.

Correct Answer: **B.** $P$ to $R$
