Solution

The correct option is D scanty or no rainfall
Scant or no rainfall,
A rain shadow is a dry area on theleeward side of a mountainous area (away from the wind). The mountains block the passage of rain-producing weather systems and cast a "shadow" of dryness behind them. Wind and moist air is drawn by the prevailing winds towards the top of the mountains, where it condenses and precipitates before it crosses the top.
