      Polar

    • D.

      Arid

    Correct Answer
    A. Tropical

      Polar

    • D.

      Arid

    Correct Answer
    A. Tropical
    Explanation
    The given statements of "hot, rains a lot, located near the Equator" suggest a climate that is characteristic of the tropical climate zone. In this type of climate, temperatures are consistently warm or hot throughout the year, and there is a high amount of precipitation, resulting in frequent rainfall. The location near the Equator indicates that the area receives direct sunlight, contributing to the hot temperatures. Therefore, the correct answer is tropical.

    Correct Answer
    C. Polar
    Explanation
    The picture is likely to show a polar climate because it is associated with cold temperatures and icy landscapes. Polar climates are typically found near the Earth's poles, such as the Arctic and Antarctic regions. These areas experience extremely cold temperatures, with long winters and short summers. The picture may also depict features like glaciers or icebergs, which are commonly found in polar regions.

The absence of extreme heat or cold, as well as the moderate amount of rainfall, also suggest a temperate climate. Additionally, the lack of tropical features such as palm trees or dense rainforest further supports the idea of a temperate climate.
