HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
The winter monsoon winds come from northeast. What makes the winds from that monsoon cold? My answer--Because in the winter land is colder than the oceans because of the northern hemispheres closeness to the equator? Is this correct?

  • social studies -

    The fact that they come from more northern latitudes, in winter, is what makes the winds cold.

    No, your answer is wrong.
