The distance of the two meridians at 60 deg latitude must be lesser than 100 km. How did they calculate 500 km?

Give me the formula to solve this question.

Answer should be 50km. Formula for LATITUDE IS Lcos (value of angle).

Each degree of latitude is 111kms.

1000 km in the place of 100km, then it would be 500km.
Latitude = Lcosθ = 1000x 1/2=500.
