10. Oh-oh, where am I?

If your geographical position was 0° latitude, 0° longitude, where in the world would you be?

A) At the Greenwich Observatory in England
B) In the Atlantic Ocean
C) In the West African country of Ghana
D) At the center of the Earth

Your answer — A) At the Greenwich Observatory in England — was incorrect.

If your latitude is 0°, you must be somewhere on the equator, the line separating the northern and southern hemispheres. If your longitude is 0°, you are standing on a line that connects the North and South Poles, and passes through Greenwich, England. The two lines meet in the Atlantic Ocean, a few hundred kilometres south of Ghana and west of Gabon.
