Step 1

In the question it is asking that an observer located in the north pole, would the altitude of the stars in the east, increase, decrease, both, or stay the same

Step 2

There are few systems to find the location of the celestial objects.

Altitude-azimuth system

Equatorial co-ordinate system

Step 3

Azimuth starts form the exactly north at zero degree, at the east, it becomes 90 degree, at the south it becomes 180 degree and at the west it becom...
