  1. Tundra and Taiga

  2. Tundra and Desert

  3. Rain forest and Savanna

  4. Temperate forest and Steppe


Solution

The correct option is A

Tundra and Taiga


Tundra is a type of biome where the tree growth is hindered by low temperatures and short growing seasons. It refers to the areas where the subsoil is permafrost. In terms of precipitation, it is desert-like, with only about 15–25 cm per year, evaporation is also relatively minimal.

Taiga is boreal forest or snow forest, characterized by coniferous forests consisting mostly of pines, spruces. The taiga too experiences relatively low precipitation, however in the range of 30 to 70 cm.

In tropical rainforest, average annual rainfall exceeds 200 cm.

The savanna receives a total of around 200 cm of rain most of which occurs in wet season i.e from from May to November.

Temperate forests have precipitation in the range of 75-150 cm and distributed evenly throughout the year. In steppe grasslands, rainfall ranges from 75 to 100cm.
