Though the Sun rises two hours earlier in Arunanchal Pradesh than in Gujarat, the watch shows the same time. Give reasons.

Answer:

The rising of the Sun in Arunachal Pradesh two hours earlier than in Gujarat causes a time lag of two hours between the two states. To maintain the uniformity in following time, India has chosen the meridian which passes through Mirzapur (Uttar Pradesh) as the Standard Meridian of India (82°30'E). Therefore, the watch shows the same time.
