This implies that in 1 hour, it covers the 360°/24= 15° longitude.

The lines of longitude run between 180° W to 180° E.

As one moves:

- To the west (left) of the Prime meridian, the time is reduced from GWT.
- To the east (right) of the Prime meridian, the time is increased from GWT.

Suppose the Time in Greenwich Is 1:00 PM. What Will Be the Time in the Place With a Longitude of 30°W?

We know that,

15° longitude = 1 hour

Therefore, 30°(15 × 2) longitude = 2 (1 × 2) hours

This implies that at 30°W, the time will be 2 hours less than the time in Greenwich.

Therefore, the correct answer is 11:00 am.
