Latitude is an angle which ranges from 0 degrees at the Equator to 90 degrees (North or South) at the poles.

So, it's equator to poles right?

Sai Rao said: (Apr 15, 2017)  
No, it's angle is measured from centre of the earth so the answer is none of these.

Perpendicular from the equator to the place.

It is parallel to the equator.
