The correct answer is C. the humidity of rain forests can produce local and regional precipitation.Evapotranspiration represents a process in which large amounts of water vapor is released by plants and the water vapor goes up into the atmosphere and contributes to the creation of warm wet clouds that produce rain. The amount of water vapor released from plants in tropical forests is much larger than in any other place in the world, and this is due to the constant heat throughout the year, as well as the rains, which appear almost every day and oversaturate plants with water so they have to release a part of it. This contributes significantly to the formation of clouds and how big and wet that will be, and therefore the amount of rain they will produce.
