ANSWER KEY

I. Fill in the blanks:

1. All parallel circles from the equator up to the poles are called parallel of _LATITUDES

2 . The distance between longitudes decreases towards __POLES

3. . Dibrugarh is located in the state of ___ASSAM_.

4.The imaginary line along which earth rotates is known as __AXIS_.

5.The earth rotates 1 degree in 4 minutes.

6.The value of prime meridian is _ ZERO DEGREE

7.The frigid zone lies near the __POLES.

8.The total number of longitudes are _360

9.The Antarctic circle is located in the SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE

10.Grid is the network of _PARALLELS OF LATITUDES AND MERIDIANS OF LONGITUDES

11.The earth has been divided into _____24 time zones.

12.When the sun is at the highest point in the sky, it is known as _NOON

13. The Arctic Circle is located in the ____NORTHERN Hemisphere.

14.The _EQUATOR_ divides the earth into the northern and the southern hemisphere.

15.The Tropic of Capricorn is located at ___23 ½ DEGREE SOUTH

16.The Standard Meridian of India is _____82 ½ DEGREE EAST

17.The 0 degree meridian is also known as ___PRIME MERIDIAN


II. Differentiate between the following:

1. Parallels of latitudes and Meridians of longitudes.

The imaginary lines that run from east to west are Meridians or longitudes are also imaginary lines on
known as parallels or latitudes. the Earth’s surface that run from North Pole to South
Pole.
Parallels don’t intersect. All meridians intersect at two places; the North Pole
and the South Pole.

Letters N and S are used to denote the location Letters E or W are used to represent direction

2. Temperate zone and Torrid Zone

The mid-day sun is exactly overhead at least once a The mid sun never shines overhead on any latitude
year on all latitudes in between the tropic of cancer and beyond the tropic of cancer and the tropic of Capricorn.
the tropic of Capricorn. this area ,therefore, receives the The angle of sun's rays goes on decreasing towards the
maximum heat and is called the torrid zone. poles As such, the area bounded by the tropic of cancer
and the Arctic circle in the northern hemisphere ,and the
tropic of Capricorn and the Antarctic circle in the
southern hemisphere, have moderate temperatures.
These are, therefore, called temperate zones

III. Draw a neat and labelled diagram of Important Latitudes and Heat Zones.
