Answer:
There is some error in this question. The reason is given below.
 
Area of the valley, A = 97280 km2
Level in the rise of water in the valley, h = 10 cm = (10/100000) km = (1/10000) km
Thus, amount of rain fall = Ah = 97280 km2 (1/10000) km = 9.828 km3
 
Volume of water in each river = length breadth height = 1072 km 75 m 3 m = 1072 km (75/1000) km (3/1000) km = 0.2412 km3
 
Thus, the volume of water in three rivers = 3 0.2412 km3 = 0.7236 km3 ? 9.828 km3.
This shows that the amount of rain fall is not equal to the amount of water in three rivers.
 
Thus, the question has some error.
