Read the passage carefully. Choose the correct answer.
The wind can make a leaf tremble or uproot a tree. You can see it passing in sand dunes, dust storms, crashing waves and fluttering flags. Most times it passes unnoticed. At times, it wreaks havoc.
The wind is movement caused by air from an area of high pressure to one of low pressure. The greater the difference in the pressure, the stronger the wind will be.
As the air above the ground is warmed up by the sun, it rises. Air flows in to replace the rising air and wind is created.
The wind can affect people. Many Southern Californians believe that traffic accidents and heart attacks increase when the harsh Santa Ana blows in from the desert.
In Alaska, where the wind blows so strongly that it can rattle teeth, the people react most strangely to it. As late as the 1880s, the women there chased the wind with clubs and knives and tried to direct it towards a fire where the village men waited. When they were sure he wind was there, the men would shoot the fire with rifles, pour water on it and drop a huge stone on top of it, just to stop the howling of the wind.
