      • a Yangtse This river is in China. [It is about 6,300 km long, the
        third longest in the world. A third of China’s population live on
        the land around the river (the Yangtse River Basin).]
        b Amazon This river is in South America. [It begins in Peru
        and flows east into the Atlantic Ocean. Most of it is in Brazil.
        It is the largest river in the world (quantity of water) and the
        second longest. It is about 6,400 km long. It is between 1.6
        and 10 km wide but in the wet season parts of it can be
        as much as 190 km wide. There are no bridges across the
        Amazon because most of it is in the rainforest, where there
        are no roads or cities.]
        c Nile This river is in Africa. [It is about 6,650 km long and is
        believed to be the longest river in the world. It begins from
        Lake Victoria in Uganda and ends in Egypt. The Egyptians
        built the Pyramids close to the Nile because they had to bring
        the huge stones down the river from Aswan. About half of
        Egypt’s population live in the Nile Delta region.]
        d Volga This river is in Russia. [It is about 3,700 km long,
        the longest river in Europe. It begins in hills between St
        Petersburg and Moscow and flows into the Caspian Sea.
        About half of Russia’s biggest cities are on or near the Volga.
        In some places it is so wide you cannot see the other side.
        Sturgeon fish (from which we get caviar) live in the Volga.]
