Correct option is
A

Direction of sunlight

The uneven heating of the air takes place due to the greater intensity of sunlight at the equator as compared to that of poles. The equator receives the sunlight directly and hence gets heated up easily. But the sunlight reaches the pole obliquely and hence causes less heating of the land.
