    The Great Basin receives little rainfall because:

    4. of the rain shadows of mountain ranges such as the Sierra Nevada's or Southern Rockies.

    Explanation:

    Great Basin desert is the only cold desert of the United States of America and has little rainfall due to the rain-shadow effect of Sierra Nevada's mountains. Rain-shadow Effect is such a effect in which air around the mountains absorb moisture from the surrounding area and results in the dryness of the area. The option 1 is not correct as the it is not the basic reason behind its little rainfall. The option 3 is not correct as it is not reason behind it. The option 5 is incorrect as Japanese current is not responsible for the little rainfall.
