With reference to the Tropical Cyclones, which among the following is / are correct observation(s)?
1. Tropical Cyclones are formed in low atmospheric pressure areas
2. The highest atmospheric pressures are generally recorded at their centres
3. At any given altitude, environment inside the cyclone is warmer than its outer surroundings
Choose the correct option from the codes given below:

Answer: [C] Only 1 & 3

All tropical cyclones are formed in areas of low atmospheric pressure in the Earth’s atmosphere. The pressures recorded at the centers  of tropical cyclones are among the lowest that occur on Earth’s surface at sea level. Tropical cyclones are driven by the release of large amounts of latent heat of condensation, which occurs when moist air is carried upwards and its water vapour condenses. This heat is distributed vertically around the center of the storm. Thus, at  any given altitude, environment inside the  cyclone is warmer than its outer surroundings.
