Correct option is D)

These jet streams are located approximately over 27°-30° north latitude, therefore, they are known as subtropical westerly jet streams. Over India, these jet streams blow south of the Himalayas, all through the year except in summer. The western cyclonic disturbances experienced in the north and north-western parts of the country are brought in by this westerly flow in winters. In summer, the subtropical westerly jet stream moves north of the Himalayas with the apparent movement of the sun.
