    Question: Which of the following regions is referred to as Garden of Eden as mentioned in the Bible ?

    (1) Dead Sea
    (2) Kutch region of South Iraq
    (3) Nile Valley
    (4) Cango Valley
    Answer: (2) Kutch region of South Iraq
    The Garden of Eden is the biblical “garden of God”, described most notably in the Book of Genesis (Genesis 2-3), but also mentioned, directly or indirectly, in Ezekiel, Isaiah and elsewhere in the Old Testament. The Eden of Genesis has been variously located at the headwaters of the Tigris and Euphrates in northern Iraq, in Africa, and in the Persian Gulf. The Eden in Ezekiel, however, is unequivocally located in Lebanon. “Kush” is often incorrectly translated as Ethiopia, which was also known as Cush, but in this case thought to be referring to Cossaea, a Greek name for Elam, immediately to the east of ancient Babylon, which, unlike Ethiopia, does lie within the region being
    described.

    The 2013–14 North American cold wave was caused by southward shifts of the North Polar Vortex.
