The answer to this is A. it can be confusing to choose the right answer if you would not read the questions carefully. Latitude lines are known as horizontal lines. They will be very helpful in determining the various areas where countries are located. Longitude lines are those that may start from one end of the equator to the other end.

There are times when these lines would meet in certain areas around the world. It can be enough to make people understand the geographical locations of the different places better. Remember to check out the figures and numbers you will acquire to find the exact location of certain areas.

Latitude lines are drawn parallel to one another similarly to the equator. Longitude lines are drawn starting and ending at the north and south poles.

These lines, although invisible and imaginary in their placement on the actual earth, are used in geographical location. Using latitude and longitude will allow you to find any place in the world, just by following a set of numbers.

Latitude lines are parallel, circling the globe like the equator. The longitude lines, on the other hand, are the ones that meet at the poles. Latitude is the position of someone or something in relation to the equator. The longitude coordinates are the position of someone or something in relation to the Prime Meridian, or the middle of the globe going around the poles.

Latitude and longitude are most often used as coordinates by sailors and scientists. They are exact coordinates, and can easily be found on the globe, if you know where to look. Once someone has the right longitude and latitude coordinates, they can find anything on the globe: the White House, the Capitol building, the Taj Mahal, etc.
