Consider the following differences between Anabatic and Katabatic winds:

  1. While anabatic winds are known as upslope winds, katabatic winds are known as down-slope winds
  2. While Bora is an example of katabatic wind, Berg is an example for anabatic wind

     Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Answer: [A] 1 Only

Anabatic wind is a warm wind which blows up a steep slope or mountain side. Katabatic wind carries high density air from a higher elevation down a slope under the force of gravity. Both Berg and Bora are katabatic winds.
