What relationship exists between the winds at 2,000 feet above the surface and the surface winds?

A.
The winds at 2,000 feet and the surface winds flow in the same direction, but the surface winds are weaker due to friction.
B.
The winds at 2,000 feet tend to parallel the isobars while the surface winds cross the isobars at an angle toward lower pressure and are weaker.
C.
The surface winds tend to veer to the right of the winds at 2,000 feet and are usually weaker.
