Dear student,

Please find below the solution to the asked query.

2)Jet streams are fast flowing winds blowing in a narrow zone in the upper atmosphere.
In winter the sub-tropical westerly jet streams bring rain to the western part of India ,especially Himachal Pradesh and Punjab.
In Summer the tropical easterly jet blows over peninsular India approximately at 14 degree north and bring some rains and storm.

3)Mawsynram lies in the Khasi hills in Meghalaya and gets exceptionally heavy rains from the Bay of Bengal branch of the summer monsoons which move upto the Brahmaputra valley .Striking against the north-eastern hills they bring heavy rainfall in this area especially in Mawsynram which receives more than 1,080 cms rainfall annually.The average annual rainfall is highest in the world.

Please ask single query in a single thread .

Hope this information will clear your doubt.
