Question 16 Explanation: 

The thermocline layer lies below the first layer and is characterised by rapid decrease in temperature with increasing depth.

In the Arctic and Antartic circles, the surface water temperatures are close to 0$^\circ$ C and so the temperature change with the depth is very slight. Here, only one layer of cold water exists, which extends from surface to deep ocean floor.

The oceans in the northern hemisphere record relatively higher temperature than in the southern hemisphere. The highest temperature is not recorded at the equator but slightly towards north of it. "
