There are three steps in the Water Cycle, Evaporation, Condensation, and Precipitation. Evaporation is PART of the water cycle and that's the relationship between the two. Hope I helped!! I'm not exactly Einstein!!
Frankly there are NOT 11 steps in the water cycle, you could say that for the Global hydrological cycle but not a spicific places water cycle. The 4 stages are Evaporation, Condensation,Preticipation and collection
