Solution

The correct options are
B A low pressure zone is created in the area.
C Air from the surrounding areas will be pulled into the formed cavity.
During the formation of a cyclone in tropical areas, the warm and moist air rises upward, thus creating a low pressure cavity below it. Air present in the surrounding areas will be sucked into the cavity. This air warms up again and then rises. This process repeats itself, resulting in formation of a cyclone.
