#### Solution 1

1. Longitudinal and latitudinal extent of Brazil:
Brazil being the 5th largest country in the world. The Longitudinal extent of Brazil is an area 4,319 kilometers from east to west 34°47'30" E to 73°59'32" W (34 degrees 47 minutes 30 seconds E to 73 degrees 59 minutes 32 seconds W longitude) and the Latitudinal extent of Brazil extends 4,395 kilometers from north to south 5°16'N to 33°44'S (5 degrees 16 minutes 20 seconds N to 33 degrees 44 minutes 32 seconds S latitude).
2. Longitudinal and latitudinal extent of India:
India being one of the biggest countries in Asia. The Longitudinal extent of India has an area of 2933 kilometers from east to west.  68°7' E to 97°25' E (68 degrees 7 minutes E to 97 degrees 25 minutes E longitude) and the Latitudinal extent of India extends 3214 kilometers from North to South 37°6' N to 8°4' N (37 degrees 6 minutes N to 8 degrees 4 minutes N latitude)
The difference in the longitudinal and latitudinal extent of India and Brazil is ≅ 10 degrees with Brazil being longer.
