ach day is more or less the same, the morning is Q: "E clear and bright with a sea breeze; as the sun climbs high in the sky, heat mounts up, dark clouds form, than rain comes with thunder and lightning. But rain is soon over" Which of the following regions is described in the above passage? a) Savannah b) Equatorial c) Monsoon d) Mediterranean
ice sheet and polar desert temperate broadleaf forest temperate steppe subtropical dry forest
Solution: b) Equatorial climate is characterized by consistently high temperatures (around 30 C), with plentiful preeipitation (150-1,000 cm), heavy cloud cover, and high humidity, with very little annual temperature variation. Wet equatorial regions lie within about 12 latitude of the Equator.
Q: In the South Atlantic and South Eastern Pacific regions in tropical latitudes, cyclone does not originate. What is the reason? a) Sea Surface temperature are low b) Inter Tropical Convergence Zone seldom occurs c) Coriolis force is too weak d) Absence of land in those regions
Kara Sea Greentand Sea Laptev Sea Barents Sea Beaufort Sea Batte Bay East Siberian Sea Hudson Bay Gulf of Alaska Labrador Sea North Sea Sea of Okhotsk Bering Sea R.T H E U R OP E A MERC A Guit of Biscaya PACIFIC ATLANTIC Gult ot Mexico Arabian Sea South & Philippines China PA CIFIC Bay of Bengal! F R IC A O CEA N NDIA N SOUTH OCEAN AMER CA AUSTRALIA O CEA N O CEAN Tasman Sea
Solution: a) Option C is wrong. Coriolis force is weak only in the region around 0-b degrees North or South latitudes Option B is also wrong. ITCZ formation is not essential to the formation of cyclones. Cyclones are formed in regions where ITCZ does not form, for e.g. in North Atlantic Option D is absurd as absence of land boosts cyclones. Presence of land cuts off moisture from the cyclone. So, the most appropriate answer should be A For cyclone formation, a sea temperature of at least 26 degree Celsius is needed. In the South-eastern pacific and South Atlantic region cold currents are found. This leads to lower sea temperatures. Hence, cyclones don't form there.
Q: What can be the impact of excessive/inappropriate use of nitrogenous fertilizers in agriculture? 1. Proliferation of nitrogen-fixing microorganisms in soil can occur. 2. Increase in the acidity of soil can take place 3. Leaching of nitrate to the ground-water can occur. Select the correct answer using the code given below. a) 1 and 3 only b) 2 only c) 2 and 3 only d) 1, 2 and 3
Q: What explains the eastward flow of the equatorial counter-current? a) The Earth's rotation on its axis b) Convergence of the two equatorial currents c) Difference in salinity of water d) Occurrence of the belt of calm near equator
