Dear Sir/Madam,
Good day to you.
I have a question here which I do not understand. Why is the rate of evaporation 
high in a tropical rainforest and yet very humid at the same time. From what I 
know, the higher the humidity, the lower the rate of evaporation.So how is this 
possible? Kindly explain. What causes a high rainfall in the rainforests? Does 
it always rain in the rainforest only?
Thank you. Hope to hear from you soon.
Have a nice day.
