Expert Answer:

  • Geostationary Satellites are a special type of Geosynchronous satellite which appear to be stationary to its observers from the surface of the Earth.
  • These satellites are often used for processing or transmiting data only for a certain geographical area all-throughout.
  • This geostationary nature of the satellite can only be achieved when the orientation of the satellite is just above or at zero degrees to the equator.
  • Therefore, as per your question, option '[1].Plane of the Earth's equator' is the right answer.
