The concept behind the directions is same that we use in our daily life. To solve the direction sense test, first we need to make a sketch of the data provided. Remember, four main Directions are: North (N), South (S), East (E), West (W).

Four Cardinal Directions are: North-East (N-E), North-West (N-W), South-East (S-E), South-West (S-W).

Direction Facts:

1. At the time of sunset, the shadow of an object (or a man facing East) is always ii the East.
2. At the time of sunrise, the shadow of an object is always in the West.

III. If a man stands facing the North at the time of sunrise, his shadow will be toward his left and at the time of sunset, it will be towards his right.

1. At 12: 00 noon, the rays of the sun are vertically downward, hence there will b no shadow.
