#1. Consider the following statements: 1)Roaring forties are the westerlies lies between 40N to 50N latitude in Northern hemisphere. 2)Horse latitudes are the low pressure and low temperature zone in 25-35 north and south latitude. Select the correct answer code:
#2. Consider the following statements regarding Ocean Currents: 1)Water density and temperature influences the mobility of ocean currents. 2)Cold Water ocean currents travel from the equator along the surface, towards the cold polar regions. 3)Labrador current is a cold current. Which of the above statements is/are correct:
Differences in water density affect vertical mobility of ocean currents. Water with high salinity is denser than water with low salinity and in the same way cold water is denser than warm water.
Denser water tends to sink, while relatively lighter water tends to rise.
Cold-water ocean currents occur when the cold water at the poles sinks and slowly moves towards the equator.
Warm-water currents travel out from the equator along the surface, flowing towards the poles to replace the sinking cold water.

Teak and sal are tropical deciduous trees.
Madhya Pradesh has the highest concentration of teak and sal forest in India.
Suitable topographical and climatic conditions of central highlands are suitable for growth of teak and sal.
#5. Consider the following statements: 1)Surface current constitute more than the deep-water currents. 2)Cold currents are usually found in the west coast in the higher latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere. 3)Warm currents are found on the east coast of continents in the low and middle latitudes. Which of the above statements is/are correct:
Ocean currents can also be classified based on temperature: as cold currents and warm currents:
Cold currents bring cold water into warm water areas.
These currents are usually found on the west coast of the continents in the low and middle latitudes (true in both hemispheres) and on the east coast in the higher latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere.
Warm currents bring warm water into cold water areas and are usually observed on the east coast of continents in the low and middle latitudes (true in both hemispheres).
In the northern hemisphere they are found on the west coasts of continents in high latitudes.
#6. When the Reserve Bank of India cuts the repo rate by 50 basis points, which of the following is likely to happen:
A decrease in the repo rate means the commercial banks can borrow more money from RBI at a cheaper rate, meaning lending rates for consumers may decrease.

In the Peninsular region, they are found in deltas of the east coast and in the river valleys.
