Item CL123002: As the earth moves around the sun during a year, places closer to the north pole have more hours of daylight when the north pole is angled toward the sun.

As the earth moves around the sun during a year, do changes in the North Pole's angle with respect to the sun affect whether Place 1 or Place 2 gets more hours of daylight?

  1. Yes, when the North Pole is angled toward the Sun, Place 1 is in sunlight for more hours during a day than Place 2, so Place 1 has more hours of daylight.
  2. Yes, when the North Pole is angled toward the Sun, Place 2 is in sunlight for more hours during a day than Place 1, so Place 2 has more hours of daylight.
  3. No, Place 1 and Place 2 are both in the northern hemisphere, so they have the same number of hours of daylight regardless of whether the North Pole is angled toward the Sun.
  4. No, Place 1 and Place 2 have a different number of hours of daylight during a day, but the difference does not depend on whether the North Pole is angled toward the Sun.
