Complete step by step answer
A cyclone is a weather phenomenon consisting of a large system of winds that rotates around a low atmospheric pressure centre in which the weather in the central part is calm. The formation of cyclones depends on the temperature of sea surfaces and humidity. Speedily rotating storms that begin over tropical oceans are referred to as tropical cyclones. East coastal areas such as Chennai and Puri are more prone to be affected and hit by cyclones in comparison to West coastal areas such as Mangalore. However, all these areas are likely to be affected by a cyclone. The city of Amritsar is located far off from the coastal regions and hence is not likely to be affected by a cyclone.
Therefore, (C) Amritsar is the correct answer.

Note
The West coastal areas are less prone to be impacted by cyclones but areas including Mangalore, Kerala, and Gujarat have been affected by Cyclones in the past.
