      Ordinal Points

    Correct Answer
    D. Compass Rose
    Explanation
    The image above is depicting a compass rose. A compass rose is a figure on a compass, map, or nautical chart that displays the orientation of the cardinal directions (north, south, east, and west) and their intermediate points. It is used as a navigational tool to determine direction and is commonly found on maps and compasses.

      Ordinal Points

    Correct Answer
    C. Cardinal Points
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Cardinal Points." Cardinal points refer to the four main directions: north, south, east, and west. These directions are depicted on a compass and are used for navigation and orientation. They are called "cardinal" because they are considered the most important or fundamental directions.

These include northeast, northwest, southeast, and southwest. Unlike cardinal points (north, south, east, and west) which are the main directions, ordinal points provide more specific information about the direction.
