AAround the equator
BWhere the Polar easterlies meet the Westerlies
CWhere the Westerlies meet the trade winds, at about 30 degrees
DNorth of 60degrees N, south of 60degrees S

Correct Option: 3  

Explanation:
Where the Westerlies meet the trade winds, at about 30 degrees
The horse latitudes, one in the Northern henisphere and one in the Southern, are subtropical atmospheric high-pressure belts. They are regions of high pressure, dry air and variable winds and often lie over arid desert. Crews of sailing ships are reputed sometimes to have thrown horses overboard to conserve water when their ships were becalmed in these latitudes.
