How is Bangladesh a delta of the river Ganges?
Ganges flows through Bangladesh in the name of Padma. The many strems that originate from the combined discharge of rivers Ganga and Brahmaputra, in the name of Meghna, form delta near its mouth leading into the Bay of Bengal, and this region covers major potion of Bangladesh...so Bangladesh is a delta of the Ganges.

Asked in Lakes and Rivers, River Deltas
What is the difference between a river delta and a rivers mouth?
The formation of a delta is the result of the material carried downstream by the river not being removed by the tide. Where there is little tidal difference a delta will form, especially if the river is major, such as the Nile, Mississippi or Danube for example. In other parts of the world large rivers do not form deltas, the Amazon, the St Lawrence & the Rhine. Compare in France the Estuary of the Garrone, in the Bay of Biscay & the Rhone in the Mediterranean.
Asked in Australia, Lakes and Rivers
Does the Murray-Darling river have a delta?
No. To begin with, there is no such river as the Murray-Darling. The Murray and Darling Rivers are two quite distinct and separate rivers. The Darling is merely a tributary of the Murray, but together they form the major rivers in Australia's biggest river system, known as the Murray-Darling river system. The Murray River empties into Lake Alexandrina, which then opens out into the Southern Ocean, but there is no delta. There is a series of sand dunes, but these do not constitute a delta.
