Best Answer

Ans. The correct option is D.

Longitude is the angular distance of a point measured on the surface of the earth to the east/ west of the central source point.

The eastern longitude is 97o25'E and the western longitude is 68 degrees 7'E. Therefore, India's easternmost point will be 2 hours ahead of the western point. India ranges from 8 degrees 4 minutes on the north to 37 degrees 6 minutes north latitude and 68 degrees 7 minutes east side to 97 degrees 25 minutes east longitude. accordingly, its latitudinal and longitudinal extent is roughly thirty degrees.
