Expert Solution
To determine

Pick the keyword from the given list: The instrument used to measure wind speed.

### Explanation of Solution

The horizontal movement of air or the motion of the air along the surface of the Earth is known as the wind. The vertical movement of air or the motion of the air perpendicular to the surface of the Earth is known as the air currents.

The instrument used to measure wind speed is called anemometer. It consists of a rod to which three or four cups are and the rod is free to rotate...
