Day and Night are equal at the:

A. Prime Meridian
B. Antarctic
C. Poles
D. Eqator
Answer» D. Eqator
Explanation: The equator receives equal day and night through-out the year because it does not tilt in relation to the sun's location. Because of the tilted axis of the Earth, the poles and locations away from the equator lean towards or away from the sun as an orbit is completed, while the equator stays in essentially the same location relative to the sun.
