Solution

  1. As we move away from 0°latitude, i.e. from equator towards north and south pole, the temperature decreases.
  2. The region between 0°to 23°30' North and South, i.e. Torrid zone receives perpendicular sunrays, thus the temperature of this region is high.
  3. The region between 23°30' to 66°30' North and South, i.e. Temperate zone receives slant sunrays, thus the temperature of this region is comparatively low.
  4. The region between 66°30' to 90°North and South, i.e. Frigid zone receives extremely slanting sunrays, thus the temperature of this region is very low.
