    yes when siberian high pressure winds passes through yellow sea it became wet and humid and responsible for rain in winter season in china.

  • destination

    kya bol rahe ho aap..
    need to again recheck what u have studied from particular sources….
    thnx

  • destination

    firstly go through that book ,remain doubt will clear from there.. page no.155,156

  • Lord Vorminious

    Okay I’ll check thanks.

  • destination

    see chapter no. 21 G.C.LEONG for reference.

  • destination

    see,
    warm temperate eastern margin is subdivided in to three parts
    1-china type
    2-gulf type
    3-natal type
    ya u r right natal type climate got rain throughout the year . but it is part of temperate monsoon climate as above i have explained it .in china type , in summer season due to south east monsoon and in winter north west monsoon is responsible for rain throughout the year.
    hope so it will be enough to clear ur doubt.
    thnx ATB

  • Lord Vorminious

    Gotta disagree, China Type climate has long dry winters. Only Natal type climate has both summer and winter rains. Even then it cannot be said it does not have short durations of distinct dry seasons.

    1-Composite volcanoes: These volcanoes are characterized by eruptions of cooler and more viscous lavas
    than basalt. These volcanoes often result in explosive eruptions. Along with lava, large quantities of
    pyroclastic material and ashes find their way to the ground. This material accumulates in the vicinity of
    the vent openings leading to formation of layers, and this makes the mounts appear as composite
    volcanoes.
     A composite volcano (cone-shaped volcano formed by alternating layers of solidified lava and rock
    particles) is a combination of a cinder cone and shield volcano that results from alternating eruptions of
    volcanic debris and lava. This type of volcano is likely to be the tallest and steepest volcano.
     Shield Volcanoes: These volcanoes are mostly made up of basalt. For this reason, these volcanoes are not
    steep. They become explosive if somehow water gets into the vent; otherwise, they are characterized by
    low-explosivity. Ex. Hawaiian volcanoes. The upcoming lava moves in the form of a fountain and throws
    out the cone at the top of the vent and develops into cinder cone.
     Mid-Ocean Ridge Volcanoes: These volcanoes occur in the oceanic areas on the system of mid-ocean
    ridges that stretches through all the ocean basins. The central portion of this ridge experiences frequent
    eruptions.
     Cinder cone volcanoes (also called scoria cones) are the most common type of volcano and are the
    symmetrical cone shaped volcanoes. They may occur as single volcanoes or as secondary volcanoes on
    the sides of stratovolcanoes or shield volcanoes.

    2-Pair 1 is not matched correctly: The Humboldt Current is a cold, low-salinity ocean current that flows
    north along the west coast of South America from the southern tip of Chile to northern Peru. Also called
    the Peru Current, it is an eastern boundary current flowing in the direction of the equator.
     Pair 2 is not matched correctly: The Agulhas Current is the western boundary current of the South Indian
    Ocean. It flows down the east coast of Africa.
     Pair 3 is correctly matched: The Gulf Stream, together with its northern extension towards Europe, the
    North Atlantic Drift, is a powerful, warm, and swift Atlantic ocean current that originates in the Gulf of
    Mexico and stretches to the tip of Florida, and follows the eastern coastlines of the United States and
    Newfoundland before crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

    3-Equatorial Climate – There is no month without rainfall due to almost daily convectional rain.
     Mediterranean type of climate- It receives maximum rainfall in winters. Rain falls in heavy showers for
    few days with bright sunny periods in between.
     China type or Temperate monsoon type of climate- This Climate type is found at Eastern coast of
    southern continents in Temperate areas. Hence, South East Trade winds bring more even distribution of
    rainfall throughout the year.

    4-The correct sequence from North to South is: Ulan Bator-Seoul-Bangkok-Kuala Lumpur.

  • destination

    correct answer is
    1-b
    2-c
    3-c
    4-a

    When We Plan To Appear In Civil Services Examination,We Are On Different Turf

    Ever Aspirant Encounter Such Feelings During Preparation But Your Determination,Focus,and Eye On Your Final Target Remind You What Is Expected Of You.

    Sorry, ho gaya ….ab no msg.

  • Solitude

    Your second cause is not justifiable because you looked at other’s performance after delivering of your own performance. Still, Suppose, you had looked at other’s performance before you started to solve the questions, it must have added positiveness to you because all were making good score…..Generally by seeing other’s bad performance we get disappoint.

  • Lara croft

    Lack of revision made me scored less and external factors like other aspirants good performance added to my woes ? maybe this i should have stated ?

  • Ubermensch

    But then inhone south west wind likha hai not south west monsoon winds. 😛

  • Solitude

    Not possibility…that is the reality…..
    How Forum IAS didn’t include the N-E wind in its answer, it can better explain….

  • Solitude

    Look, In first reply, you said about other aspirants but it is not the reason of your performance. In second reply, you talked about your performance but still it is not the reason of such performance……
    We need to know the cause of your such performance…..
    Inconvenience caused by my arguments is regretted but to the point answer is requirement of our professional life and also for this exam too….

  • Abhijit (ABG)

    Hmm, this is another possibility – 2 and 3 only then should be the right answer

  • Lara croft

    Hanji matlab mujse basic ques bi nai ho paye ?

  • mango

    thanks sir, there’s a mistake-
    1.deserts include cold deserts as well
    2. there are mid latitude deserts as well.
    so ‘almost all deserts’ seems wrong wording,rather should be —major hot deserts.

  • Solitude

    Is it the reason?

    Waise, only plausible reason can be North East monsoon winds instead of north east winds
