Hint: Sun rays do not fall equally on all parts of the Earth. In some regions, sun rays could be directly falling whereas in others, slantly. These variations cause differences in climate patterns. Based on this, the Earth is divided into three broad zones - the torrid zone, the temperate zone and the frigid zone.

a. $20 ^\circ N$ is situated in the Torrid zone,
b. $36(½)^\circ S$ is situated in the Temperate zone,
c. $45 ^\circ N$ is situated in the Temperate Zone,
d. $88 ^\circ S$ is in the Frigid zone, and,
e. $12 ^\circ S$ is in the Torrid zone.
Note: Note that any place through its coordinates can be situated in its heat zone if we remember the latitudes of the zones itself. The Torrid zone lies between $23.5 ^\circ N$ and $23.5 ^\circ S$. The Temperate zone lies from $23.5 ^\circ N$ to $66.5 ^\circ N$, and from $23.5 ^\circ S$ to $66.5 ^\circ S$. The Frigid zone lies from $66.5 ^\circ N$ to $0 ^\circ N$, and from $66.5 ^\circ S$ to $0 ^\circ S$.
