B
2 alone
C
1, 2
D
None
Question 9 Explanation: 
Jet streams are the fast – moving winds blowing in a narrow zone in the upper atmosphere. According to the Jet stream theory, the onset of southwest monsoon is driven by the shift of the sub – tropical westerly jet from the plains of India towards the Tibetan plateau. The easterly jet streams cause tropical depressions both during southwest monsoon and retreating monsoon.
Question 10
From which language the word Monsoon has been derived?
A
Greek
B
Arabic
C
French
D
Latin
Question 10 Explanation: 
The word ‘monsoon’ has been derived from the Arabic word ‘Mausim’ which means ‘season’. Originally, the word ‘monsoon’ was used by Arab navigators several centuries ago, to describe a system of seasonal reversal of winds along the shores of the Indian Ocean, especially over the Arabian Sea. It blows from the south-west to north-east during summer and from the north-east to south-west during winter.
Question 11
During summer solstice, the sun’s rays fall vertically over____
A
Tropic of Cancer
B
Tropic of Capricorn
C
Equator
D
North pole
Question 11 Explanation: 
Monsoons are a complex meteorological phenomenon. Meteorologists have developed a number of concepts about the origin of monsoons. According to the Dynamic concept, Monsoon wind originates due to the seasonal migration of planetary winds and pressure belts following the position of the sun. During summer solstice, the sun’s rays fall vertically over the Tropic of cancer. Therefore, all the pressure and wind belts of the globe shift northwards.
Question 12
Which of the following statement is correct?
  1. A systematic change in the direction of planetary winds is known as monsoon.
  2. north-east monsoon winds are called as Trade winds
  3. During the winter season, the pressure and wind belts shift southward
A
1, 2
B
1, 3
C
2, 3
D
1, 2, 3
Question 12 Explanation: 
During summer solstice, Inter -Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) also moves northward, and a major part of Indian landmass comes under the influence of southeast trade winds. While crossing equator this wind gets deflected and takes the direction of southwest and becomes southwest monsoon. During the winter season, the pressure and wind belts shift southward, thereby establishing the north-east monsoon (trade winds) over this region. Such systematic change in the direction of planetary winds is known as monsoon.
