Solution

The correct option is A 1 and 4 only

Explanation :

Chinook:

These are warm and dry winds blowing on the eastern slopes (leeward side) of the Rocky Mountains. They are called Snow Eaters as they melt the underlying snow cover.

Mistral

The cold and dry wind blows in Spain and France from the North-west to the South-East direction. It mostly occurs during the winter months. They originate in the Alps. They are very cold, dry, and have high-velocity winds.

Pampero:

The pampero is a cold polar air from the west, southwest, or south on the pampas (a type of grassland) in the south of Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Bolivia.

Foehn

Foehn is a dry and warm wind that develops due to adiabatic heating on the leeward side of a mountain range. These winds are more common on the northern side of the Alps in Switzerland.
