The wind blow towards the equator.This effect is termed as the Coriolis effect

• These trade winds are located in between 0 and 30 degree of latitude, north and south of the equator.

Answer:

Explanation:The area between 30° N and 30° S is an area of high pressure, from there the winds blow towards the equator and towards the poles. 20° N lies between the 30° N and equator, so at the latitude of 20° N, the winds blow towards the equator. Same happens at the 20° S, it lies between 30° S and equator. Hence, at the altitude of ​20° S, the winds blow towards the equator
