Why does the Northern Hemisphere receive more heat than the Southern Hemisphere on 21st June? Which types of seasons prevail in both the Hemispheres?

Answer:

Northern Hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun. The rays of the Sun fall directly on the Tropic of Cancer. So these areas receive more heat.

At this time, the Northern Hemisphere experiences summer and the Southern Hemisphere experiences winter.
