The shape of the Earth is ?
The Earth is almost completely round. The force of gravity would pull the Earth into a perfect sphere shape, but the fast rotation of Earth on its axis, an imaginary line running from the North Pole to the South Pole, reduces the effect of gravity on the equator.

We grow food on this type of landform
Plains are more suitable to agriculture than plateaus because they are low, flat lands that have deep, fertile soil. A plain is an area of flat land that actually covers around one-third of the Earth's land.
This landform is cooler than the plains
Mountains are cooler than plains because as we go higher the temperature n pressure decreases so that's why the plain area are hotter n mountains are cooler.
