 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
The polar diameter is ____ to the equatorial diameter.
 A more B equal C less D they cannot be compared
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -The Earthâ€™s equatorial diameter is 12, 756 km, but from pole to pole, the diameter is 12, 714 km, so there is a difference of 42 km .

Detailed explanation-2: -This also implies that the objects situated at the equator are 21 km away from the earthâ€™s centre (also known as geocentre) than the object which is situated at the poles of the earth. Here we see that the earth has two different diameters since it is not completely spherical.

Detailed explanation-3: -Shape of the Earth The Earth departs from a purely spherical shape in having an equatorial radius that is greater than its polar radius.

Detailed explanation-4: -Regardless of the model, any radius falls between the polar minimum of about 6, 357 km and the equatorial maximum of about 6, 378 km (3, 950 to 3, 963 mi).
