Solution

The correct option is A Protractor
Protractors are typically used to mark points denoting Parallels of Latitude while using the equator as a reference point. They allow us to draw and be precise with the angles we mark. Rulers are used to mark straight lines and help us measure the length of line segments. Compasses are used to trace arcs, circles and angles while also being used to mark equal lengths. Finally, dividers are used to measure and compare lengths.
