Corrosion is greater near the seashore than in a dry rural atmosphere.

A. True

B. False

The question was asked in class test.

This is a very interesting question from Eight Forms in chapter Eight Forms of Corrosion of Corrosion Engineering

The correct answer is A. True

To explain I would say: Corrosion occurs due to the presence of oxygen and moisture (electrolyte). The electrical conductivity of the electrolyte is one of the factors of corrosion. Corrosion increases with an increase in electrical conductivity of the electrolyte. Moisture with salt content relatively has high electrical conductivity, hence corrosion is greater at the seashore.
