Question 3: “Wind and temperature are the predominant drivers of fire behaviour. Hot temperatures will speed up the process of preheating and heat transfer and allow a fire to spread more quickly. Wind speeds up the process of heat transfer by pushing flames and heat sideways to preheat unburnt areas. Higher winds also mean more oxygen and more intense flames.”

Also, “The influence of wind is greater in the tree canopy and where this canopy is interconnected or continuous, fires can spread incredibly quickly”

Greater the fire spread, greater the ecological damage. Hence, Option ‘a’ is correct.
