This question already has an answer here:
Granted the question has been asked in different form; but the answer still escapes me.
At one place I read that locations in question have low sea-surface temperature. At another place I read that due to land positions (or lack thereof) causes wind to not gather speed.
The answer mentioned in duplicate-suggestion-question are related to vertical wind shear.
Plus, my question is which of the following four options would you pick and why and why not others.
This was an MCQ in a recent exam, with only one option being correct:
- Sea surface temperature are low.
- Inter-tropical Convergence Zone seldom occurs.
- Coriolis force is too weak.
- Absence of land in those regions.
I have doubts as:
Sea surface temp are a tad bit lower in those regions. Also, the ITCZ seldom crosses southwards. (Am I wrong?)
Coriolis force is good in 5 degrees to 30-40 degrees. (I think)
Since, there can be only one option true, which one is true?
