The picture in figure shows tree line along the sea coast on an island near the equator. As shown, the tree tops are permanently bent in one direction. Are the trees bent towards the sea or away from it? Explain.
The tree tops are permanently bent in one direction, i.e., towards the land or away from the sea. This is because in the day time wind blows from sea to land. This sea breeze makes the trees to bend towards the land.
