Correct Answer - Option 3 : Convective Activity

The correct answer is Convective Activity.

  • Convective Activity in Rajasthan and the presence of western disturbance that led to the atmosphere becomes unstable.
  • This creates the essential condition for the occurrence of dust storms in Rajasthan.


  • In the context of climate change, we can say that in north India the temperature is increasing more compared to south India.
    • An increase in temperature means an increase in heating which means there will be more heatwave days and major reasons for the occurrence of dust storms and thunderstorms.
    • If the temperature increases then conditions become more favourable for the occurrence of dust storms.
