In the water cycle first water is evaporated from lakes and oceans.
Next,transpiration is being taken action from the plants.
Than,transportation is being used to get the evaporation and Transpiration over to where is needs to get.
Also, precipitation is next and the water falls into the mountains.
After,precipitation is done surface flow is than being taken action and what that does is it brings all the water that is evaporated back down.
Finally,Infiltration is lastly to be used to complete the water cycle and what this does is it takes all the water that was evaporated and takes it down under the lakes and is than returned to back where it came from.
