    Solution:

    The given statement is true.

    •  At the poles, the air is colder than that at latitudes about 60 degrees. 
    • The warm air at these latitudes rises up and the cold wind from the polar region rushes in to take its place. 
    • In this way, wind circulation is set up from the poles to the 60-degree latitude regions.

    Therefore, we can say that the polar winds do not move in the exact north-south direction due to the rotation of the earth.
