  • Q11

    Using the diagram below, in which of the following positions would the Northern Hemisphere experience Summer and why?

    Question Image

    D, because the Earth's axis is parallel to the Sun, causing the Northern hemisphere to receive moderate temperatures and equal days and nights

    B, because the Earth's axis is tilted towards the Sun, causing the Northern hemisphere to receive more direct sunlight, longer days, and higher temperatures

    A, because the Earth's axis is tilted towards the Sun, causing the Northern hemisphere to receive more direct sunlight, longer days, and higher temperatures

    C, because the Earth's axis is tilted away from the Sun, causing the Northern hemisphere to receive more direct sunlight, longer days, and higher temperatures
