Q. 2 E3.5( 22 Votes )
International Date Line is a line passing through 180° meridian diametrically opposite to the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). It was adopted to overcome the problems faced by circumnavigators in keeping the track of correct date and day of the week when travelling. It is supposed to pass the Pacific Ocean along the 180° meridian but makes short detours in order to avoid land masses.
