  1. What does a dam do? It blocks water from flowing down a river. Does that sound like a flood to you? If it blocks the water, where does that water go?

  2. Nope. You're not right. Dams are built to control floods.

  3. While dams can cause floods, I think the answer here would be C) a reservoir. Dams are made to retain water/a reservoir of water.
