Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    India experiences _____________

    • A.

      Temperate climate

    • B.

      Tropical Monsoon climate

    • C.

      Tropical climate

    • D.

      Cold climate

    Correct Answer
    B. Tropical Monsoon climate
    Explanation
    India experiences a tropical monsoon climate. This climate is characterized by high temperatures throughout the year, with distinct wet and dry seasons. The wet season, known as the monsoon season, brings heavy rainfall due to the influence of the southwest monsoon winds. These winds carry moisture from the Indian Ocean, resulting in abundant rainfall over most parts of India. The dry season, on the other hand, experiences little to no rainfall. This type of climate is common in the southern and eastern regions of India, where the monsoon winds have a significant impact.

    • B.

      Humid

      Equable

    • D.

      Hot

    Correct Answer
    C. Equable
    Explanation
    Equable climate refers to a mild and moderate climate that is characterized by relatively stable and consistent temperatures throughout the year. This type of climate is typically found in coastal areas, where the presence of large bodies of water helps to regulate temperature extremes. The term "equable" suggests that the climate is pleasant and comfortable, without excessive heat or cold. Therefore, the given answer of "Equable" is appropriate for describing the climate in coastal areas.
