    • D.

      Low Pressure Area

    Correct Answer
    B. Tropical depression

    Correct Answer
    C. Typhoon
    Explanation
    A typhoon is a large and violent tropical cyclone that forms over warm ocean waters. It is characterized by low atmospheric pressure and strong winds, typically exceeding 74 mph. Typhoons are commonly found in the western Pacific Ocean and can cause significant damage due to their powerful winds, heavy rainfall, and storm surges. They are similar to hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean and cyclones in the Indian Ocean.

    • D.

      PWA/PWAS

    Correct Answer
    A. PSWA/PSWS
    Explanation
    The correct answer is PSWA/PSWS. This is likely an abbreviation for Public Storm Warning Signal/ Public Storm Warning System. PAGASA, which is the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration, provides weather advisories and warnings, particularly for storms and typhoons. PSWA/PSWS would be the appropriate acronym for their storm warning system.

    B. PSWS #3
    Explanation
    PSWS #3 is the correct answer because it indicates a public storm warning signal given with moderate to heavy damage. This suggests that the storm is severe and could cause significant destruction. The other options, PSWS #1, PSWS #2, and PSWS #4, do not specify the extent of damage and therefore do not accurately describe the situation.

It is the agency responsible for monitoring weather disturbances, providing weather forecasts, and updating the public on weather conditions in the Philippines. PAGASA plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety and well-being of the Filipino population by providing timely and accurate information about weather patterns and potential hazards.

    The given answer, PSWS #3, is the correct answer because PSWS stands for Public Storm Warning Signal, and PSWS #3 indicates that a tropical cyclone is expected to bring winds of 121-170 kph within at least 18 hours. This means that PSWS #3 is the appropriate warning signal to indicate the wind speed range mentioned in the statement.

This implies that a typhoon or severe weather system is approaching, and the public should be prepared for potentially strong winds and other associated hazards. PSWS#4 is likely a warning level indicating a significant threat, prompting people to take necessary precautions and stay updated with official advisories.
