Correct option: (a) microclimate


Microclimate is defined as the climate of a very small or restricted area, especially when this differs from the climate of the surrounding area. Here, while the climate of the surrounding area is very hot the place at the edge of the stream, under the tree, on a rock will have a cooler microcleinate.
