Day and Night are equal at the :

(1) Prime Meridian
(2) Antarctic
(3) Poles
(4) Equator

Correct Answer : (4) Day and Night are equal at the Equator.

Explanation :

The equator receives equal day and night throughout the year because it does not tilt in relation to the sun’s location.

Because of the tilted axis of the Earth, the poles and locations away from the equator lean towards or away from the sun as an orbit is completed, while the equator stays in essentially the same location relative to the sun.

The days and nights are equal all over the world on March 21st and September 23rd because the sun crosses the plane of the earth’s equator making day and night of equal length. March 21st is known as Spring or Vernal Equinox and September 23rd is known as Autumnal equinox.

Because of this Day and Night are equal at the Equator.
