The correct answer is B. the movement of the Ice and the deposition of eroded material.During the last Ice Age, which ended about 10,000 years ago, the Alps were covered in snow and ice, and many of the glaciers. The movement of many glaciers was the main factor behind the formation of the Alpine landscapes of the characteristics that we see today. The glaciers made numerous valleys, cirques, U-shaped valleys, earrings, spikes pyramidal, truncated spurs. As the Ice age ended, all of these features of the landscape were revealed once the majority of the glaciers are gone, and they gave us the landscape we see in the Alps and in the present.
