Also, where did you get this image?

### Re: Road Scholar B

Questions
1. stream gradient = the change in elevation of a stream over a distance
2. solution:
stream distance = 27456 ft
change in elevation = 270
gradient = 270 ft / 27456 ft = 9.83 feet per 1000 feet

new question:
1. What is a tributary?
2. How can one be identified/What are characteristics of one (on a topographic map)?

Correct!

Answers to new question: 1. a stream or river flowing into a larger river or lake.
2. Since streams and rivers always flow downhill, tributaries will usually be at a low elevation on a topographic map.

3. Name one of the regions in the US where these can be found

I think that typically, Road Scholar tests avoid this type of question and usually have labeled maps to go along with the questions. By the way, that is Mendocino County.

^^, the event deals more with reading and interpreting maps rather than factual information.

@NeilMehta You should probably post again because it seems like no one is offering another solution.
