Could someone check my answers? Please and thank you!

At which latitude would you more often have the sun striking the ground at a high angle?

a) 60°S
b) 0° (the equator) - my answer
c) 90°N (the North Pole)
d) 30°N

In which climate would the sun be striking Earth at a low angle for much of the year?

a) desert
b) temperate
c) polar - my answer
d) tropical

Earth is heated during the day, but not at night. What causes day and night?

a) the orbit of Earth
b) the tilt of Earth on its axis
c) the motion of the sun to different latitudes
d) the rotation of Earth - my answer

Earth is closest to the sun in January, when it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere. How is this possible?

a) The sun is heating the Northern Hemisphere more in winter, but it takes awhile for it to heat up.
b) It heats up to a higher temperature during the day, but it still ends up colder because the days are shorter.
c) The sun is smaller during the winter months.
d) The angle at which the sun strikes Earth is more important than the distance. - my answer

  6. These answers were inspired by Abigail, who is 100% correct on this.

    1: 0° (the equator)
    2: polar
    3: the rotation of Earth
    4: The angle at which the sun strikes Earth is more important than the distance

    trust me, this is all correct
