Correct Answer - Option 3 : Precipitation

The correct answer is ​Precipitation.

  • Atmospheric pressure also called barometric pressure is pressure within the earth's atmosphere and is measured by a barometer.

  • The factors on which atmospheric pressure depends are temperature, altitude, and rotation of the earth.
  • As the temperature increases, atmospheric pressure decreases.
  • As the altitude increases, the atmospheric pressure decreases.
  • Due to the rotation of the earth, the air at the poles gets shifted towards the equator.
  • At the equator, this air gets heated and rises up creating low pressure.
