How are plains formed?

# Plains are formed when everything in the land weathered or eroded away, leaving the land flat. # Another way the plains are formed is when a volcano erupts and burns everything in its way, all that is left are the plains. This makes bare land or barren plains.
Plains are formed in several different ways. The most common are from a dried up lake or a glacier moving past an area. Both of which leave a flat almost concave surface which geologists call a plain.

What is the landscape of Brazil like?

The landscape of Brazil is dominated by two prominent features, the Amazon River with its surrounding lowland basin of 1,544,400 sq. miles (4,000,000 sq. km) and the Central Highlands, a plateau that rises southward from the great river. Most of the Central Highlands consists of a tableland varying in altitude from 984 to 1,640 feet (300 to 500 metres) above sea level, broken by a number of low mountain ranges and cut by deep valleys. The Highlands ascend steeply in the east forming an escarpment, where several peaks attain an altitude of 8,202 feet (2,500 metres) or more, and then drop precipitously to a narrow Atlantic coastal plain. A network of high mountain ranges runs from the south of the country to the northeast forming a continental divide between the Atlantic Ocean and the interior. Brazil's highest peak,Pico da Neblina, reaching 9,888 feet (3,014 meters), is in the north close to the Venezuelan border.
