Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 2 : Narmada

The correct answer is Narmada.

  • River Narmada does not form a delta.
  • River Narmada:
    • The Narmada is the westward flowing river of Peninsular India.
    • Source: The Narmada rises from the western flank of Amarkantak plateau in the state of Madhya Pradesh.
    • Mouth: The Narmada river drains into the Gulf of Khambat (the Arabian Sea) near Bharuch in the state of Gujarat.
    • The river flows in a rift valley between the Vindhyas in the north and the Satpura in the south.
    • The river forms a picturesque gorge in marble rocks.
    • The Narmada forms the Dhaundhar waterfalls, southwest of Jabalpur.
    • It forms the traditional boundary between North India and South India.
    • Peninsular rivers, such as the Narmada and the Tapi form estuaries.

Most of the major rivers of the peninsula such as the Mahanadi, the Godavari, the Krishna and the Cauvery flow eastwards and drain into the Bay of Bengal. These rivers make deltas at their mouths. Hence, only Narmada from th elist does not form delta.
