    Awesome Effort :)

    Kindly, look into Ques 11.
    The answer should be "Sextant" and not a " Quadrant"..

    "Quadrant" is normally found in a geometry box.. and cannot measure altitudes.

    A sextant is an instrument used to measure the angle between any two visible objects. Its primary use is to determine the angle between a celestial object and the horizon which is known as the object’s altitude.
