Q. 4

Delhi and Mumbai are both situated on plains and their height above sea level is less than 300 meters. Why is there so much difference in their monthly average temperatures? In which months are the average temperatures in these two cities most similar? Can you explain?

Answer :

Although Delhi and Mumbai are both situated on plains and their height above sea levels is lee than 300 meters, there is contrasting difference in their monthly average temperatures because the Mumbai lies in the tropical region. Its coastal nature further ensures that temperature won’t vary much throughout the year. On the other hand, climate of Delhi is influenced by its sub-tropical and semi-arid conditions, with high variation between summer and winter temperatures as well as precipitation.

However, July is the wettest month of the year in both Delhi and Mumbai.
