The Earth without rotational movement would result into

  1. No sun-rise and sun-set
  2. No occurrence of day and night cycle
  3. Only one season

Select the correct answer using the code given below

  1. 1, 2 and 3
  2. 2 and 3 only
  3. 1 and 2 only
  4. 1 only


Earth's rotation is the rotation of the planet Earth around its own axis. The Earth rotates from the west towards east. As viewed from North Star or polestar Polaris, the Earth turns counter-clockwise.

Without this rotation, only one side of the Earth will be exposed to sunlight and the other half will be in the shadow or darkness. Hence there should be rotation of the Earth around its own axis to cause day/night, seasons, sunrise/sunset so that all the parts of Earth have both day and night.

The correct option is A.
