Answer :

Dip is the angle made by the magnetic field lines of earth with the horizontal


a) Yes, As the magnetic field lines at the equator of earth is horizontal, the dip is 0°


b) Yes, As the magnetic field lines at poles of earth is vertical, the dip is 90°


The angle of Dip can vary from 0° to 90°
