Q. 1 C

# Complete the sentence by selecting the correct option:The difference between the local time of any two consecutive longitudes isA. 15 minutesB. 04 minutesC. 30 minutesD. 60 minutes

Longitude is the angular distance of a place east or west of the meridian at Greenwich, England. It is represented in degrees.

One rotation = 360o

The time required for the earth to complete one rotation or 360o = 24 hours

The difference in degrees between any two consecutive longitudes is 1o

thus, the difference between the local time of any two consecutive longitudes = 24/360 hours = 0.066 hour

1 hour = 60 mins

0.066 hour = 4 mins
