They are formed by air containing invisible water vapour to rise and then cool at its dew point. This is the temperature at which the air becomes saturated. As the water cools the air looses its capacity to hold the water and this condenses into clouds. The water then becomes heavy enough to fall to Earth under gravity

Nope, but they can come from Cumulonimbus clouds, which are the same clouds that produce thunder and lightning. See the link below for a picture of what they look like.

No. Water vapor comes from bodies of water and the ground. It condenses to form clouds.

cumulonimbus clouds the same clouds are associated with tornados thunderstorms and most severe weather

clouds come from water evaporation that turns into water vapor therefore making a floating object in the sky

because the clouds are practicaly made from water and once that builds up it has to fall making...rain.

Lightning is the massive discharge of static energy that is built up in the clouds.

cucmulis clouds are puffy and quite high in the sky and do not come very low. cumulus clouds can bring heavy storms and lightning and thunder.
