A coastline on Earth experienced a high tide at 6 a.m. At what approximate time will the next low tide occur, and why?
6 p.m., because the coastline will turn 90 degrees from the moon
6 p.m., because the coastline will turn 180 degrees from the moon
12 noon, because the coastline will turn 90 degrees from the moon
12 noon, because the coastline will turn 180 degrees from the moon

I am not really for sure on this one, but I think it is either the first one or the third one. Please help
