Correct Answer: (c) creating flood conditions

Explanation: In a forest, raindrops do not hit the forest floor directly. The canopy layer of the forest intercepts the flow of raindrops so that rainwater falls on the leaves of trees and then drips slowly onto the forest floor. Thus, water does not collect and stagnate on the forest floor.
