Correct option is
A

The deccan plateau is sloping towards the east.

Narmada originates from Mount Amarkantak in Madhya Pradesh. As it flows down the hill, it is trapped in a rift valley between the Vindhya and the Satpura muntain ranges which leads it to the west towards Gujarat, were it drains into the Gulf of Khambat.
Tapati rises in the Satpura mountain range and is also trapped in a rift valley.
