Question

In what direction does the Moon rise on full Moon day in spring season?
  1. North
  2. West
  3. South
  4. East


Solution

The correct option is D East
The position of moonrise varies with the phases of the Moon. On full Moon day, all of the illuminated part of the Moon is visible which means the Sun and the Moon are on the opposite sides of the Earth. The sun rises in the East and sets in the West in the spring season. So when the Sun sets in the West, the Moon rises in the East on the full Moon day.
