12 should be flowing artesian wells?
The answer is the fourth, fifth and the sixth well-portions where there is a lower ground elevation.

12.19 In Figures 12.19A and B, two depressions are occupied by water, whereas others are dry.

(A) Explain this presence and absence of ponds in these two figures.
In figure A, the pond was prevented into diminishing due to the saturated area brought about by the resistant clay in the first pond in figure B, in the other hand, the first opening is a non-resistant type of land and the second opening is a resistant material that can hold water.

(B) If the two ponds were perennial (i.e., year-round) ponds, because of intersecting the water table, how would the presence or absence of water in the other depressions differ from that which is shown?
Springs are formed either from a destroyed steam, sinkholes, or valleys. Caves are also formed from saturated area of land where a land will sprout and will construct as caves.

12.20 Judging from what you learned from information in Figure 12.19A in Ch. 12, how might one seal a leaking stock pond? Hint: We’re talking three steps here, with steps #1 and #2 being the draining and restoring of pond water.
The first thing that you should do is to drain the water in the pond, then put resistant clay to the bottom of the hole. Once done, you can fill back with water.
12.21 Examine Figure 12.22. At a glance, several ponds might be mistaken for stock
