Answer:
(i) The uppermost layer of the forest canopy intercepts the flow of raindrops, and most of the water comes down through the branches and the stems of the trees. Also, rain water drips slowly from the leaves over branches of the shrubs and herbs. Hence, raindrops are not able to hit the forest floor directly.

(ii) Forests absorb the noise of the activities occurring around it like sound of vehicles from nearby highway and thus helps in reducing noise pollution.
