onshore toward a mountain range:

 a) as the air rises, it pulls
moisture from the ground, causing the higher elevations to be drier. b) as the
air goes over the top of the mountains and falls back down toward lower
elevations, it holds less moisture, creating a “rain shadow” zone of unusually
high precipitation. c) as the air rises, it holds less moisture, causing
dissipation of all the clouds. d) as the air goes over the top of the mountains
and falls back down to lower elevations, it holds even more moisture, creating
a “rain shadow” desert. e) None of
