Expert Answer:

The Earth spins on its axis from west to east in 24 hours. The axis is an imaginary line passing through the center of the Earth. The two end points through which the axis pass is known as the North Pole and the South Pole. These are the two points from where the latitudes and the longitudes pass. Latitudes and longitudes forms the geographical grid which help us to locate places on the surface of the Earth.
