Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 2 : Bay of Bengal
  • A bay is a recessed, coastal body of water that directly connects to a larger main body of water. 
  • There are various ways in which bays can be formed.
  • The largest bays were developed through plate tectonics.
  • Examples for such bays: the Gulf of Guinea, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Bay of Bengal. Bays also form through coastal erosion by rivers and glaciers.
  • The Bay of Bengal is the largest bay in the world with an area of about 839,000 square miles (2,173,000 square km). 
  • The Bay of Bengal is in the northeastern part of the Indian Ocean.
  • It is bordered by Sri Lanka and India to the west, Bangladesh to the north, and Myanmar (Burma) and the northern part of the Malay Peninsula to the east.
