Q- Why does river Brahmaputra carry less water in Tibet?
Answer- The Brahmaputra river rises in Tibet, at the east of the Mansarowar lake and takes a ‘U’ turn and enters India in Arunachal Pradesh through a deep gorge. After entering in India several tributaries joined Brahmaputra and that is why Brahmaputra carries less water in Tibet and after tributaries joined it so the flow of water increased in amount of Brahmaputra River.
