1. Albedo of a surface is defined by the ratio of outgoing to incoming solar radiation. Keeping this in view, which of the following surface will have the highest albedo?

1. Water
2. Sand
3. Snow
4. Forest

2. Geostrophic wind is a balance between the pressure gradient force and the Coriolis force. In non-geostrophic wind, flow will become circulatory because of

1. Pressure difference term
2. Momentum term
3. Temperature difference term
4. Shear term

3. In valley-mountain system, cold air is heavier than warm air, and thus flows down hill as a katabatic wind. In the case of an anabatic wind,

1. Wind rises vertically in the valley
2. Wind forms updraft and downdraft motion
3. Wind will flow along the slope
4. Wind will have cross mountain flow
