There are four main directions – East, West, North and South as shown below:
Cardinal Direction can be easily understood by the below diagram which is based on sunrise.
If we are walking toward any direction and we have to turn right ,then we should turn right or in clockwise direction with 90.If we have to turn left,then we should turn in anti-clockwise direction at 90.
For Example :
If South-East becomes North, North-East becomes West and so on. What will West
It is clear from the diagrams that new name of West will become South-East.
Sunrise always occurs in east direction.
At the time of sunset the shadow of an object is always in the east.
If a man stands facing the North, at the time of sunrise his shadow will be towards his left and at the time of sunset it will be towards his right.
At 12:00 noon, the rays of the sun are vertically downward hence there will be no shadow.
