Which one of the following does not cause soil erosion?

A. Deflation
B. Deforestation
C. Weathering
D. Overcropping
Answer» A. Deflation
Explanation: Deflation is a decline in general price-levels, often caused by a reduction in the supply of money or credit. Deflation can also be brought about by direct contractions in spending, either in the form of a reduction in government spending, personal spending or investment spending. Deflation has often had the side effect of increasing unemployment in an economy, since the process often leads to a lower level of demand in the economy.
