Q. “Rainfall occurs in winter from the retreating monsoon and summer is dry” – above statement best describes which of the following regions?

[A] North East

[B] Konkan coast

[C] Lakshadweep Islands

[D] Coromandel Coast

Answer: D

The Ganga delta and the coastal plains of Orissa are hit by strong rain-bearing storms almost every third or fifth day in July and August while the Coromandal coast, a thousand km to the south, goes generally dry during these months.  

Most parts of the country get rainfall during June-September, but on the coastal areas of Tamil Nadu, it rains in the beginning of the winter season.
