Question

The IDL starts straight but changes its course because of which of the following reasons?
  1. Easternmost tip of Russia does not get on the other side of the IDL. 
  2. Northernmost tip of Brazil does not get on the other side of the IDL. 
  3. Northernmost tip of Russia does not get on the other side of the IDL. 
  4. Easternmost tip of Brazil does not get on the other side of the IDL. 


Solution

The correct option is A Easternmost tip of Russia does not get on the other side of the IDL. 
The IDL starts straight but it changes its course so that the easternmost tip of Russia doesn’t get on the other side of the IDL. Then it passes straight in between through Russia and Alaska.
After that, the line again changes its course and continues its course to accommodate islands which are part of Alaska.
