    The correct answer is Location A.

    Explanation:

    In 1953 the geographer specializing in arid zones, Peveril Meigs divided the desert regions of the Earth into three categories, according to the total rainfall they receive. This widely accepted system considers that extremely arid lands are those that have less than 250 millimeters of annual rainfall, and semi-arid lands have an average annual rainfall between 250 and 500 millimeters. According to that classification, location A is the only one that has an annual rainfall of less than 250 mm.
