Question

Which of the following areas is/are best suited for formation of air masses?
1.   An extensive area with broadly uniform surface of earth.
2.   Areas having cyclones.
3.   Hot deserts in tropical regions.
Select the correct answer using the codes given below.


  1. Only 1 and 2
  2. All of the above
  3. Only 1 and 3
  4. Only 1


Solution

The correct option is C Only 1 and 3
Areas having cyclones have converging air flow and are therefore not suited for formation of air masses. Air masses are formed over an extensive area with broadly uniform surface of earth like hot desert region in tropical areas. Anticyclone over an area also helps in formation of air masses as they have divergent air flow
