Best answer

Plants and animals from Kashmir and Rajasthan are of different types.

Differences in plants:

1. Plants of Kashmir, which is a snowy region, are conical in shape due to their sloping branches. 

2. This shape prevents the snow accumulation on the tree and the thick bark helps the tree to withstand the cold. 

3. But the plants of Rajasthan, which is a desert region, are either leafless or their leaves are small, needle shaped or have been modified into thorns. So the loss of water can be reduced 

4. The stem stores water and food so they are fleshy. The stem performs photosynthesis in the absence of leaves.

Differences in animals:

1. Animals of Kashmir have thick hair and white or silver body colour camouflaged with snow. This helps them to get protection in snowy region. 

2. The animals of Rajasthan have long legs with flat and cushioned soles. 

3. The nostrils are protected by folds of skin. The eyelashes are long and thick. It gives protection from sand and heat.
