Quiz Question: What is the driest non-polar desert on Earth?
The given options are:
- Libyan Desert
- Atacama Desert
- Gobi Desert
Info: Chile’s Atacama Desert, tucked in the shadow of the snow-capped mountains of the Andes, is one of the driest places in the world. Some weather stations in the region have never recorded a single drop of rain, while scientists say the Atacama may not have had any significant rainfall from 1570 to 1971. Fifty times more arid than California’s Death Valley, its soil has been compared to that of Mars.
