1-25: MCQs based on Class 6 Geography NCERT
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.

only Longitude decreases, latitude remaining the same :)

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

hahhaa..... bro u see the name PARALLEL OF LATITUDES ..they r called parrallels because distance between them never change...:D

@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

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.
