Answer the following questions: –


Why is atmosphere important for us?

The atmosphere protects us from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays.


Why do clothes take longer to dry on a rainy day?

As the temperature is very low on a rainy day, the humidity is high and evaporation is slow, so clothes take longer to dry.
