      Another way to define location

    Correct Answer
    B. The Exact spot on Earth where a place can be found.
    Explanation
    Absolute Location refers to the precise geographic coordinates that identify the exact spot on Earth where a place can be found. It is typically expressed using latitude and longitude coordinates or a specific address. This definition distinguishes it from relative location, which describes the position of a place in relation to other landmarks or geographic features. Absolute Location provides a standardized and universally understood method of identifying and locating places on Earth's surface.

    Explanation
    Techtonic Plates are huge slabs of the Earth's surface. These plates are made up of the Earth's crust and the uppermost part of the mantle. They float on the semi-fluid asthenosphere beneath them and slowly move over time. The movement of these plates is responsible for various geological phenomena such as earthquakes, volcanic activity, and the formation of mountains.

    Absolute Location is determined by using Latitude and Longitude lines

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Absolute location refers to the precise geographic coordinates of a specific point on the Earth's surface. These coordinates are determined using latitude and longitude lines, which are imaginary lines that crisscross the globe. Latitude lines run horizontally and measure the distance north or south of the equator, while longitude lines run vertically and measure the distance east or west of the prime meridian. By using these lines, one can accurately pinpoint a location's absolute coordinates, making the given answer of "True" correct.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Relative Location is not described by having the exact location of an exact spot found on earth. Instead, it refers to the position of a place in relation to another place or landmarks. It is a way to describe where something is by using reference points or directions, such as north, south, east, west, or by describing its proximity to other places. Therefore, the given statement is false.
