Answer:
  1. Wind: The horizontal movement of air due to its inconsistent heating by the Sun is known as wind. It can also be defined as air in motion.
  2. Coriolis force: The Earth rotates on its axis from the west to the east. Due to this, the winds or other moving objects do not move in a straight path but get deflected.
  3. Altitude: It can be defined as the height of an object in relation to the sea or the ground level.
  4. Monsoons: The monsoons are periodic winds which develop primarily due to the heating of the landmass and the oceans.
