B. January 14 and September 23
C. March 20 and September 23
D. January 14 and June 22

Check Answer

The correct answer is C. March 20 and September 23.

The day when day and night are approximately equal in length is called an equinox. The two equinoxes occur around March 20-21 and September 22-23 each year. These are the dates when the tilt of the Earth’s axis is not tilted toward or away from the sun, resulting in approximately equal amounts of daylight and darkness at all latitudes.
