(i)It has constant high temperature with daily temperature of 26°C with no winter
(ii)It has annual rainfall of over 200cm and rainfall is throughout the year
(iii)It has high humidity all year round with double maxima of rainfall
(iv)It has small annual temperature range of 2°C – 3°C
(v)It has convectional rainfall accompanied by lightening and thunder.
=================================

(4a)
Weathering is defined as the gradual breaking down or disintegration of rocks by either physical or chemical process

(4b)
(i) Climate :Climate elements like temperature and rainfall are the major factors affecting Weathering. While physical Weathering is aided by temperature and water to break down rocks, chemical Weathering is aided by water and other gases in the atmosphere

(ii)Type of rocks : rocks are made up of different minerals while some are resistant to weathering others are not simply because of their differences in structure, composition and sizes of the rocks

(iii) Relief: very steep slopes like high mountains and courage weathering especially Frost action why gentle and even slopes favour chemical Weathering

(4c)
Exfoliation is a process in which large flat or curved sheets of rock fracture and are detached from the outcrop due to pressure release: As erosion removes the overburden from a rock that formed at high pressure deep in the Earth´s crust, it allows the rock to expand, thus resulting in cracks and fractures along sheet.
=================================

(5a)
(i)Weather is the atmospheric condition of a place over a short period (days,weeks, hours,months) WHILE Climate is the average condition of a place over a long period of time(35years)

(ii)Weather changes very often WHILE climate does not change very often

(5bi)
Sunshine= Sunshine is measured by sunshine recorder or light meter

(5bii)
Rainfall = Rainfall is measured by an instrument called Raingauge

(5biii)
Cloud cover = The amount of cloud in the atmosphere is measured by Oktas. In order words,the amount of the cloud in the air is expressed in okras or Eights of the sky cover

(5c)
The speed of that wind can be measured using a tool called an anemometer.
An anemometer looks like a weather vane, but instead of measuring which direction the wind is blowing with pointers, it has four cups so that it can more accurately measure wind speed. When wind pushes into the cups, they rotate the axis.
Reading is taken twice daily eg 9.00hours and 15.00hours
It is recorded in note book. it states the date of recording .The record is signed by the observer

INSTRUCTIONS: ANSWER FOUR (4) QUESTIONS IN ALL: TWO QUESTIONS FROM EACH SECTIONS

=====SECTION A=====

(1a)
(i) Climatic Conditions: Climatic or soil conditions in certain areas are suited for the production of a particular product. Such an area has got an overwhelming advantage over other areas.

(ii) Nearness to Raw Materials: This is a dominant factor in the location of an industry, especially that industry which uses bulky raw material that is expensive to transport and looses weight in the manufacturing process.

(iii) Availability of Finance: Finance is the life of every industry. Industries are located in those areas where banking and financial facilities are easily available. As a matter of fact, capital is attracted to those areas where industries are localised which, in turn, attract more industries.

(iv) Nearness to Markets: Before starting an industry, an entrepreneur has to take into consideration the market potentialities of his product. If the market is quite away from the place of manufacture, transport costs will be high which will raise the selling price of the product in comparison with other similar products which are manufactured near the market

(v) Adequate and Trained Labour: Industries tend to be concentrated in those areas where adequate supplies of trained labour are available. New industries are also attracted to such areas.

(1b)
(i) Reputation: The place where an industry is localised gains reputation, and so do the products manufactured
there. As a result, products bearing the name of that place find wide markets, such as Sheffield cutlery,

(ii) Skilled Labour: Localisation leads to
specialisation in particular trades. As a result, workers skilled in those trades are attracted to that place.

(iii) Growth of Facilities: Concentration of an industry in particular locality leads to the growth of certain facilities there. To cater to the needs of the industry, banks and financial institutions open their branches, whereby the firms are able to get timely credit facilities.

(iv) Subsidiary Industries: Where industries are localised, subsidiary industries grow up to supply machines, tools, implements and other materials, and to utilise their by-products.

(v) Employment Opportunities: As a corollary to the above, with the localisation of an industry in a particular locality and the establishment of subsidiary industries, employment opportunities considerably increase in that locality.
