Question

Can I know why the answer is (2) not (3)? I guess when the temperature increases, less water vapour is condensed to water droplets thus less rain? Thanks in advance!

Answer

It’ll make sense if you look at the water cycle in its entirety instead of trying to isolate certain processes.

  1. An increase in the temperature of the surrounding air leads to the increase in the rate of Process X (evaporation)
  2. An increase in the rate of evaporation leads to an increase in the amount of water evaporating from the river to form water vapour
  3. An increase in the amount of water vapour in the air leads to an increase in the amount of water vapour condensing to form clouds
  4. As more clouds form, there will be an increase in A (rainfall)
