One morning after sunrise, Edward was standing facing a pole. The shadow of the pole fell exactly to his right. Which direction was he facing?



Step by Step Explanation:
  1. We know that sun rises from the east. The shadow of any object that comes in front of the sun will fall right behind it.
  2. This means, the sun should be at the left of Edward. The given figure demonstrates the situation:
     Sun     Edward     Pole's Shadow
  3. We can say that since sun is in the east, the pole lies in the south, and so Edward is facing South.
