How are "mild deserts" (BSn and BWn) climates classified?

What is the dividing line between ''hot'' and cold'' desert climates?

How are tropical monsoon climates (Am) classified?

I have already read that full article and it didn't say anything about how mild deserts are clissified. Also didn't give a very clear explanation about tropical monsoon climates. For example, this Indian city is very monsoonal: Kolkata - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and is still Aw (tropical savanna)

must be a mistake by wiki about the climate. the difference between monsoon and wet and dry is that wet and dry get's less than a meter of rain while monsoon get's more than a meter in the course of the year.
