The correct option is; carrying the warm, equatorial waters and winds to the western coasts of the continents, The westerlies are the prevailing winds in two regions of the earth. The west winds blow between 30 and 60 degrees latitude in both northern and southern hemispheres. The wind usually comes from high pressure regions at the horse latitudes and moves toward the poles. The west winds play a vital role in carrying the warm, equatorial waters and winds to the western coasts of continents, especially in the southern hemisphere, due to its wide oceanic region.
