Give geographical reasons:

The northeastern part of the Brazilian Highlands receives very less rainfall.

Answer :

Parts of the Brazilian highlands extend upto the northern coast and forms an escarpment. The escarpments act as an obstruction to the winds coming from the sea and cause the orographic type of rainfall in the coastal region. Beyond the highlands, the effect of these winds gets reduced. As a result, the rainfall is minimal.
