Solution

The correct option is B 1 and 3 only

Explanation:

Statement 1 is correct: In Orographic rainfall, the windward side experiences rain due to adiabatic expansion of air while the leeward side remains dry due to the adiabatic compression of air.

Statement 2 is incorrect: Frontal precipitation mainly occurs in the temperate region. But the frontal system can travel to the tropical region causing precipitation there.

Statement 3 is correct: Convectional rainfall occurs mainly in the summer or the hotter part of the day and is very common in the equatorial regions and interior parts of the continents, particularly in the northern hemisphere.
