A) 1 only
B) 2 only
C) Both 1 and 2
D) neither 1 nor 2
Correct Answer: A
Solution :[a] Thiruvananthapuram has two rainfall maxima, one in June and other in October, because it receives rainfall by the south-west monsoons coming from the Arabian Sea during summer and from the retreating north-east monsoons coming from the Bay of Bengal during winter. Thiruvananthapuram does not have high annual range of temperature. This city has very low annual range of temperature because it is located very near the sea coast and the sea has the moderating effect on temperature. The temperature here does not rise very high in summer and fall very low in winter.
