Answer to question 2
The answer is C, a monsoon is a seasonal wind. Although the news may often speak of monsoon rains, these are only the rains that accompany one of the two seasonal winds that blow in south and southeast Asia. From May to September, the monsoon winds blow from southwest. This is the moist wind that brings the heavy rains. However, the dry monsoon is a wind that blows from the northeast from October to April but does not bring rain.
Answer to question 3
Answer: C, monsoon is the wind with seasonal changed direction that occurs in subtropical locations due to the migration of ITCZ and STH.
It mainly occurs in South and South-East Asian countries. During summer the ITCZ moves upwards creating a low pressure in mainland India. This creates a pressure gradient from ocean to land that helps the wind to blow from ocean to land bringing enough moisture along with it. This precipitates in western coastal regions of India , Southern part of Bangladesh, etc. When it is winter thi ITCZ moves downwards to the ocean. This makes the wind to blow from land to ocean.
