  1. Areas near the Equator. because the sun is very strong near the equator which means more evaporation happens.

    The more evaporation the more condensation. AKA the water cycle.

  2. Actually, it's "areas near the poles". I just took the quiz. Also, you know this, because near the poles, it's colder, so all the moisture in the air freezes, making very, very, very dry.

  11. @Andrew, just because the equator gets more sun doesn't mean there is less precipitation.
