Answer :

(a) The fact that Brazil lies on the equator affects its climate in a big way – Right


The temperature in Brazil is generally high due to this and rainforests are also present because of the equatorial line passing through it.


(b) India and Brazil have the same seasons at the same time – Wrong.


India lies in the northern hemisphere and Brazil in the southern hemisphere. The seasons in the Northern Hemisphere are the opposite of those in the Southern Hemisphere.

The eastern coast is more prone to cyclones, and about 80 percent of the total cyclones generated in the Indian Ocean strike the east coast of India. There are two probable reasons for it: The Western Disturbances and the tropical cyclones originating in the Andaman Sea travelling N.W. and reaching the Indian Coromandel Coast.


(d) Brazil gets a lot of rainfall because of the southwest monsoon winds – Wrong


Brazil gets rainfall because of the South East trade winds and the North East trade winds.
