Welcome to the second of our Easy level quizzes on Position. In the first, we learned about the points on a compass rose which fall between North, East, South and West. Now we test your knowledge of South East, South West, North East and North West.
As you will remember, there are 90o (a quarter turn) between the cardinal compass points of North, East, South and West. But there are 45o (an eighth of a turn) between the cardinal points and the intercardinal ones of NE, SE, SW and NW.
They are actually very easy to remember – NE falls between North and East; SE falls between South and East; SW falls between South and West; and NW falls between North and West.
Now, it’s time for the quiz. Think carefully about each question before you choose your answer – it would be terrible if you lost your bearings!
