Here is a tip:

By increasing the number of grids, a climate model can be improved.

Explanation

  • A climate model can be improved by increasing the number of grids because it will increase the reliability and certainty of the model.
  • If the number of cubes are decreased in a grid, then it will affect the model because the climate of the region in one cube may be different from the climate in its neighbouring cube. 
  • By decreasing the number of cubes, combine the different climates of different regions under a common cube. This leads to uncertainty of the model.

Sample Response

Increase the number of cubes.
