Answer

The air flows in the open window and out the chimney.

Work Step by Step

When the air moves faster, the pressure is lower. We know that air flows from places with higher pressure to places with lower pressure. Above the chimney, the air is moving at a faster speed, so the pressure above the chimney is lower than the pressure at the open window. Therefore, the air flows in the open window and out the chimney.
