(i) Calculate the annual range of temperature of Station A Suggest a reason why the range is small one.
(ii) Which of the two Stations has the lower temperature? Why?
(iii) Calculate the annual rainfall of Station B.

#### Solution

(i) The annual range of temperature of Station ‘A’ is 9.3°C. The range of tempera-ture is small because the Station ‘A’ is situated close to sea.
(ii) Station ‘B’ has the lower temperature because it is situated 800m above sea level (as we move on the higher altitude the temperature decreases).
(iii) The annual rainfall of station B is = 31.8 cm.
