sir you are great......bahut hi accha smjhaya hai aapne ye topic
Q 15. Yes, distance between parallels of latitudes decreases towards the pole. Roman sir guess you unintentionally made a mistake here by saying longitudes decreases which is not true.

Nope, he's right. Longitudes are lines going from south pole to north pole and meet at poles. Prime meridian is a longitude.

Brother. Read the question again. And do you object that distance between parallels of latitude decreases towards the pole? In that case, you might like to revisit class 6 Geography again. Thanks

Aatif I agree with your point, distance between parallels of latitudes decreases when we move from equator towards the pole not that of longitudes. Arpita mam's lesson on the same can also be referred.

Distance between parallels of latitude remains same because these are parallel lines so distance remains same but as longitudes which run from North Pole to South Pole coincide at the two pole so distance between them decreases.

they talked about distance between latitudes .not length of latitude dear Atif..

The distance between latitudes remain same. The thing that decreases in case of latitudes is LENGTH or we can say the CIRCUMFERENCE of parallels of lattitudes . While In longitude, the distance between them decreases and reduces to zero at poles. Roman sir is right .You are making a mistake here. ☺

Bros.. The distance bw latitude increases towords poles slightly ... Because earth is flattered at poles checkout.. Gc leong

@akhil linear distance at 0 degree around 68.70 miles while around poles it is 69.407

if the the distances between the meridians remain the same,,the shape of the earth might not be described as an oblate spheroid(Very2 nearly a perfect sphere)

@Akhil,I am not opposing you but i think you might have made a mistake there because between each of the two parallel lines ,distances can be different but there should not be any condition of meeting them at any point..the gap between the fisrt two parallels may be different from the 2nd two parallels(not in case of latitudes).So,your reasoning is not sufficient..

Roman sir is absolutely ri8...refer page no 13 from top line 4 -12 ..d concept wl b clear n d course is abt ncert class 6 geo..clearly mentioned so plz guys first go through it..before commenting on any1 n moreover it may confuse d readers..too ..its a sincere request
Aatif Iqbal

I stand corrected. There was confusion. I took it as size of parallels of latitude which does decreases towards pole. The question was asking about 'distance' of 'parallels of latitude'. Thanks all.

Hi Roman , I am watching your videos on YouTube & preparing CSE , my humble request since I am from tamilnadu & I can't able to understand Hindi . Requesting you to teach in English . It's my request . Since I am not going any classes , I am depending on the sources available . Please do the needful.

hii arvind...sujeevan requested roman sir according to his needs..he is comfortable in english language to learn the lessons..urgently he cant learn hindi to understand these lessons and he should waste some time for that as he is a tamilian..you should not hurt others feelings by saying that you dont know hindi..many are becoming bureaucrat even without knowing English and writing exam in their mother language...

Hey !sorry Arvind Kayande but as u know empty vessel makes more noise... so here we go As per article 343 of our Indian Constitution .. although Hindi and English both r equally our official language plus 22 other languages and u r talking about the NATIONAL language which has not been yet decided yes India does not have any national language. In India each state is allowed to have its own official language based on its linguistic demographics so it's a humble request 🙏🙏 from everyone who thinks Hindi is our national language stop this from a North Indian and a Hindi speaker too🙃 sharing as per my knowledge🙏🙏🙏🙏

que.19 sir earth is sphere in shape,if it is tilted it appears as same shape.then why don't you chose second option?
Cherry Bansal

I think this is because whether tilted or not, Earth being a sphere will receive light only on half of its area.
sir this is the best way to teach..wow awsumm expalanation side by side..sir unacademy is the best thing ever happend to indian education syatem generally and to upsc aspirants particularly..bcz of u i m gng to crack dis year prelims exam with full confidence....thnk u v much sir..
1. MCOs from Class 6th Geography NCERT

2. 1. Consider the following statements: 1. Full moon can be seen twice in about a month's time. 2. New moon can be seen only during a clear night. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

3. Solution: (d) Full moon can be seen only once in about a month's time. It is also called Poornima. New moon cannot be seen at all. It is also called Amavasya.

4. 2. Moon can be seen sometimes during the day because? (a) The Moon is brighter than the sun. (b) Moon has apparent luminosity. (c) Moon does not have light of its own. (d) None of the above.

5. Solution: (b) The earth is tilted on an axis, all the while going around the sun and meanwhile, the moon is going around the earth. The light from the moon is bright enough to overpower the usual light that we see at particular times of the day. Most of the light that is visible to the human eye is in the blue color range and the moon's reflected light, combined with its location gives us the chance to see it during certain daylight hours. Due to the rotation of the moon around the earth, it is actually above our horizon for about twelve hours out of our twenty four hour day. We can only usually see the moon for about six hours during that time period, and then the bright light energy of the sun overpowers the reflection.

6. 3. Consider the following statements about stars: 1. They have their own light and heat. 2. They are made of gases. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

7. Solution: (c) Stars have their own light and heat and they are made of gases. Stars produce light due to the nuclear reactions taking place in them.

8. 4. Consider the following statements about planets: 1. All planets have their own satellites. 2. Earth is the third largest planet of the solar system. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

9. Solution: (d) Mercury and Venus do not have their own satellites. Earth is the fifth largest planet of the Solar system.

10. 5. Which of the following planets have rings around them? 1. Neptune 2. Jupiter 3. Saturn 4. Uranus 5. Earth Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1, 2 and 5 only (b) 2, 3 and 4 only (c) 2, 4 and 5 only (d) 1, 2, 3 and 4 only

11. Solution: (d) Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Uranus have rings around them.

12. 6. Venus is called Earth's twin because? 1. It has the similar size as that of the Earth. 2. It has the similar shape as that of the Earth 3. It takes the same time as that of the Earth to revolve around the sun. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 and 2 only (b) 2 and 3 only (c) 1 and 3 only (d) All of the above

13. 7. Shadows on the moon's surface are? (a) The shadows cast by the Earth. (b) The shadows cast by other celestial bodies. (c) The shadows cast by the landforms on the moon's surface. (d) The shadows cast by the landforms of the Earth. c) The shadows cast by the landforms on the moon's surface

14. Solution: (a) Asteroids aretny bodies that move around the Sun between Mars and er.

15. 10. The only planet which takes more time for rotation than revolution is? (a) Mercury (b) Venus (c) Earth (d) Mars

16. O Solution: (b) Venus is the only planet which takes more time for rotation than revolution.

17. 11. Consider the following statements about moon: 1. Moon is the nearest celestial body to the Earth. 2. Moon takes the same time to rotate and revolve around the Earth Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

18. Solution: (b) The distance from the equator to the North Pole or to the South Pole is one-fourth of a circle around the Earth. And one-fourth of a circle's 360 is equal to 90

19. O Solution: (d) The mid-day Sun is exactly overhead at least once a year on latitudes only between the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn. Latitudes along with longitudes can indicate the precise position of a place.

20. Solution: (c) Temperate zones have moderate temperature because angle of Sun's rays decreases towards the poles.

21. 15. Consider the following statements: 1. Distance between parallels of latitudes decreases towards the poles 2. All longitudes meet at a point. Select the correct answer using the code given below: (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c) Both 1 and 2 (d) Neither 1 nor 2

22. Solution: (b) Distances between longitudes decreases towards the poles and that of the latitudes remain the same. All longitudes meet at the North and South poles.

23. 16. Time can be measured by the movement of? 1. Sun 2. Moon 3. Earth 4. Other planets Select the correct answer using the code given below (a) 1, 2 and 4 only (b) 2, 3 and 4 only (c) 1, 3 and 4 only (d) All of the above

24. Solution: (c) Sundials are instruments used to determine time using the length of the shadow

25. 20. Consider the following statements about Circle of illumination: 1. It does not coincide with the axis. 2. It is a line from North pole to South pole. 3.
