Hint: - This forest form is a biome known for the drops and droppings of leaves in the autumn season - This forest has a distinct biodiversity, an increasing understory and complex soil dynamics. - Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Bihar, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu are covered by this forest. Complete solution: In India, the largest area is covered by tropical moist deciduous forest. In areas in India that receive 100 to 200 cm of annual rainfall, with distinct dry and rainy seasons and a small temperature range, tropical monsoon deciduous forests are found.. They occur on the wetter western side of the Deccan Plateau, on the Siwalik Hills from Jammu in the west to West Bengal in the east, on the north-eastern portion of the Deccan Plateau and the lower slopes of the Himalayas. Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Bihar, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu are covered by these sections. Lets see options: a. Tropical rainforest : These forests are located on the Western Ghats' eastern and western slopes.which is less area thus this is the wrong option. b. Tropical moist deciduous forest : In India, the largest area is covered by tropical moist deciduous forest. Thus this right choice c. Tropical dry deciduous forest : In severe and highly volatile climates, marked by low annual rainfall, tropical dry deciduous forests (TDFs) can be found.thus this is also the wrong option. d. Tropical dry evergreen forest : India's tropical evergreen forests are found in the Western Ghats, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.thus this is the wrong option too. Hence, the correct answer is option B. Note: - Less than 3% of the Earth's land is occupied by tropical rainforests, and they are home to more than half of our planet's terrestrial animal species. - In sustaining the Earth's dwindling supply of fresh water, rainforests play an important role. - Each minute, a swath of rainforest the size of 40 football fields vanishes.
