Solution

The correct option is D Both 1 and 2
The Indian Ocean is slightly warmer than the adjoining oceans, and thus, the pressure is relatively low due to the warm seas. Hence, the moisture-laden winds move from the west pacific to the Indian Ocean and from there on to the lands. The pressure on heated Indian land is much lower than that on the Indian Ocean. This facilitates the movement of monsoon winds from the sea to land without any significant diversion.
