Which list below describes the next steps of evaporated water through the water cycle?

Which list below describes the next steps of evaporated water through the water cycle? a) condensation, precipitation, runoff, ocean storage b) transpiration, condensation, precipitation, ocean storage c) precipitation, condensation, runoff, groundwater it most likely is b or c idk tho




it doesnt condensate after precipitation in c

1. b
2. a
3. d
4. c
5. e

Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation, Runoff, then Ocean.

So the answer is 99% correct.

Explanation: If you don't believe me then look up "Water Cycle" and go to images.

 A: Condensation, precipitation, runoff, ocean storage

Explanation: I took the quiz

"Rainwater can replace or replenish freshwater sources" and "precipitation, such as rainwater, is a source of freshwater on Earth" statements describe freshwater sources


Rainwater a source of pure distilled water, evaporated by the sun. When it falls it comes in contact of air and land. when ground soaks the water it becomes mineral water. And it is safe for drinking.

All the freshwater sources are result of precipitation from the earth surface,in various form i.e rain,mist,snow.  Freshwater falling as rain have materials dissolved from atmosphere in it,sea and the land over which the clouds has travelled.

1. d  

2. a  

3. d  

4. probably c  

5. b  

6. d  

7. b

Explanation: Got straight A's in all my biology classes, hope this helps!

1st step- B

2nd step- A

3rd step- D

4th step- C

5th step- E


In the water cycle process, the water in the ocean gets evaporated due to continuous heating. As a result of which these evaporated water changes into vapor, rises up and mixed with the atmosphere.

The atmosphere comparatively remains cool and changes the vapor into liquid by the condensation process. when the rate of condensation is very high, it falls on the earth surface in the form of precipitation.

Due to precipitation, the water falls on the earth's surface in the form of rainfall and are infiltrated through the surface mixing up with the groundwater. This groundwater then flows at certain depths and gets mixed up with the rivers and eventually adds to the seas and oceans.

Thus, the steps are arranged in order.

A) Condensation, precipitation, runoff, ocean storage


Water cycle is a natural phenomena by which water from the surface of the earth gets evaporated by the heat of the sun , rises high condenses and precipitates in the form of rain, snowfall etc.  returning the water to the earth.After evaporation from the surface of water bodies and other sources the water vapor rises high where it faces a colder temperature that results in the condensation of water vapor.This combines with dust and forms cloud.As the mass increases. the water precipitates as a result of gravity.This precipitation may be in the form of rain, snow or dew.The water that comes back to the earth's surface is store in oceans and as ground water.Thus, the next steps after evaporation is, condensation, precipitation, runoff and ocean storage.



B) Transportation>condensation>precipitation>infiltration


In the water cycle, transportation is not a path in which water follows. The water cycle is the cyclic transition of water in different phases in nature.

Infiltration is the percolation of liquid water through pores . This water then accumulates as ground water. Water can move as surface run off into fresh water sources and the oceans. Evaporation transforms liquid water into gases. Condensation changes the water back into liquid. This liquid water falls back as precipitation.

Transportation is not a process involved in the water cycle.
