Correct option is B)

The correct answer is option(B).
Winds move from a place of higher pressure to a place of lower pressure resulting in increase in the speed of winds. Accordingly, during storm the pressure becomes low due to which high speed winds prevail. also wind speed increases due to pressure gradient.
Hence, high speed winds are accompanied by reduced pressure.
