Hello, Bob! Since you're on a quiz game or something, it's not fair if I give you the answer directly. But I'll put you on the right way. You don't have to use math here, although you would in any other more detailed question than this. First, we'll go to some theory. You must know about two things, solstices and equinoxes. Solstice is the day the sun stands directly over a tropic, Cancer or Capricorn. On December 21st, over the Tropic of Capricorn, and on June 21st over Tropic of Cancer. It means, for an example, on December 21st, the start of Winter in Earth's North Hemisphere, and for the South, the start of Summer. The inverse for June 21st. The equinoxes are March 21st and September 23rd, when the sun passes over the Equator. So, on February 2nd, between December 21st and March 21st, the sun is shining right over some place between the Equator Line and the Tropic of Capricorn, hence over the South Hemisphere. And here's the trick. Go for a World Map (I think you haven't done it yet!), and look for the cities listed in the answer tab of the question. You'll notice that only one of them fills the conditions. Of the other three, one is in the North Hemisphere, one stands rightly over the Equator and the other is over the tropic.
