    Answer: East to West

    Explanation:

    A Roche Moutonnée is a rocky mass formed by abrasion when a glacier passes over a bedrock. The glacier moves from the east to the west, creating different slopes on each side of the Roche Moutonnée. this is due to different processes o each side. When the glacier travels up the bedrock, it smoothens the edges, creating rounded tips. On the downward journey, melted ice from the glacier leaks into the rocks. On refreezing, the ice creates cracks in the rock and breaks away parts of the rock.
