From the reference, meridian (N-pole) is = departure of the leg.

Upon the reference, the meridian is = latitude to the leg.

If there may reference lines (axis) then departure and latitude both are correct.

But here is reference meridian, so latitude in the leg is correct option. Because meridian is always in a N-S direction.

The given answer is correct. Orthogonal means perpendicular.

Hardik said:   5 years ago
You think meridian should be only in n-s direction. That's why latitude of leg is correct answer.

Pankaj said:   5 years ago
Orthogonal not means perpendicular. Please don't misguide others.

Orthographic means perpendicular.

So, the departure of the leg is correct.

The length of the orthographic projection of a line up on the meridian is the latitude of the line.

Answer should be departure of leg.

@Utkarsh.

I think you are right because it is a general term and the correct answer should be coordinate of the leg.

Utkarsh said:   7 years ago
If reference meridian in N-S direction then latitude of the leg and is reference meridian in E-W direction then departure of the leg.

How can we say latitude of the leg is the answer, anyone?
