    What is the impact of cold oceanic currents in the tropical regions on the western margins of the continents?

    A)  They reduce aridity

    B)  They enhance aridity

    C)  They raise temperatures

    D)  No impact

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    [b] The western margins of the continents in the tropical zone have a desert type of climate and the cold currents flowing along these tend to lower the temperature of the air thereby reducing its moisture absorption capacity. Flow of such dry cold air over the continental regions, though tends to lower the temperature, yet enhances the aridity.
