 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
Can a map represent everything on the globe (or earth) accurately at the same time?
 A Yes B No C Either A or B D None of the above
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -This statement is false. Explanation: It is not easy to draw an absolutely correct map of the world because of the spherical shape of the Earth. A number of factors such as size and angle need to be perfect to represent the exact shape of the Earth. 2.

Detailed explanation-2: -Every map has some sort of distortion. The larger the area covered by a map, the greater the distortion. Features such as size, shape, distance, or scale can be measured accurately on Earth, but once projected on a flat surface only some, not all, of these qualities can be accurately represented.

Detailed explanation-3: -Earthâ€™s surface is a 3 dimensional and Map is a 2 dimensional surface. Explanation: In order to model the surface of the earth or planet, we need to protect the earth on flat paper but by doing so the spherical properties of the geodetic earth are minimized.

Detailed explanation-4: -The fact that maps distort reality cannot be denied. It is absolutely impossible to depict a round earth on a flat surface without sacrificing at least some accuracy. In fact, a map can only be accurate in one of four domains: shape, area, distance, or direction.
