Correct Answer - Option 4 : Slope

The correct answer is Slope.

  • Hachures:
    • These are small straight lines drawn on the map along the direction of maximum slope, running across the contours.
    • They have given an idea about the differences in the slope of the ground.
    • By their thickness and overall density, they provide a general sense of steepness.
    • When the slope is steep, the lines or hachures are thick and close together; when the slope is gentle, they are thinner and farther apart.
    • The darkest portions of a hachures map represent crags and very steep slopes, while the lighter shades show the gentler slopes.
    • The white parts show plateaux, very high-level mountain tops, hillside shelves, or deep level valley bottoms.
