Out of the four given choices, the correct answer to the question regarding which continent is windiest is letter A or Antarctica. Antarctica is in the southernmost continent of Earth and it contains the South Pole which is in the Antarctic region of the Southern Hemisphere. The continent has an area of 14,000,000 square kilometers, but it has no permanent residents. Why is that so?

It is because Antarctica is the windiest, coldest and driest continent in the world. Did you know that the average wind speeds in other continents is just 12 mph? Well, now, would you believe it if Antarctica has an average speed of 198 mph katabatic (descending) winds? Just look at the difference and you will understand why Antarctica is considered the windiest continent in the world.
