(i) Humidity is the amount of moisture or water vapour present in air at any particular point of time. On a humid day, the level of water vapour in the air is more and as the air gets warmer, this level too increases. As a result, wet clothes take longer time to dry on a humid day.

(ii) Insolation is in fact the incoming solar radiations that are intercepted by the Earth. There is a tilt in the axis of the Earth. As a result of this tilt, the sunlight, and by extension, the incoming radiations, cover a larger area at the Equator than at the Poles.
