Question 5 Explanation: 

Tropical savanna climates have monthly mean temperatures above 18 $^\circ$C (64 $^\circ$F) in every month of the year and typically a pronounced dry season, with the driest month having precipitation less than 60 mm and also less than 100 - [total annual precipitation {mm}/25] of precipitation.[1]:200-1 This latter fact is in direct contrast to a tropical monsoon climate, whose driest month sees less than 60 mm of precipitation but has more than 100 - [total annual precipitation {mm}/25] of precipitation. In essence, a tropical savanna climate tends to either see less rainfall than a tropical monsoon climate or have more pronounced dry seasons.
