I would go for D. Even though North Africa has a much greater area extension than India, the first has less water surrounding it, plus there are presence of desserts, where most of the water of rainfall in not absorbed in the soil, making it evaporate fast and the climate getting dry. Not only that, but also when wind blows, it cannot find very obstacles to stabilise its speed, hence it becomes very windy and also dry. As for India, there are lands where vegetation absorbs water and the soils become fertile; withthe presence of building the wind speed is diverged or converged in such way that water evaporates in smaller amounts than in North Africa, also given that some of it was absorbed in the soils. Having this in reality, the rainfall is adequate, giving a warm condition in this country.
