What Do You Know About Air Pressure And Winds? Quiz

Do you know how the wind moves? Here's the answer. The wind moves because of the variation in air pressure from one place to another from the region of high pressure toward the part of low pressure. The wind blows rapidly when the high-pressure area is close to the low-pressure area, or if the pressure difference is enormous. This quiz has been designed to test your knowledge about the factors leading to the wind and air pressure. Let's try out! All the best!
