  • The erosion of soft rocks in an area is rapid whereas erosion of resistant rocks is low thus a degraded and flat area with hard and resistant rocks is formed.
  • Aravalli is the oldest mountain range in the world and is very rich in natural resources.
  • Aravalli is an example of residual mountains.
  • It is located in the western part of India, Rajasthan.
