Where River Amazon originates from?

A. Bayan Har Mountains
B. Qinghai
C. Mantaro River
D. Lake Vitoria

Answer & Solution
Option: C
Explanation :The Amazon River in South America is the largest river by discharge volume of water in the world. Lenght 6,400KM, Length in miles 3,976, Discharge area 7,050,000 Km^2 , Average Discharge 209,000 m^3/s.
A recent 2014 study claims that the origin of the Amazon can be traced to the Cordillera Rumi Cruz from where Peru’s Mantaro River originates. This river then confluences with the Apurímac River (whose headwaters were earlier regarded as the source of the Amazon) and then other tributaries join the river downstream to form the Ucayali River which finally confluences with the Marañón River to form the main stem of the Amazon River.
