    We are in the Northern Hemisphere, so we’ll get more sunshine from the east, south and west than from the north. In fact, you can keep your north-facing windows open all day without any window blinds. Rooms with north-facing windows are ideal as drafting rooms or an architect’s library where you can see real materials and colors under natural light.

    Sun in northern hemisphere moves from east to west and hugs the south sky in the winter…trees on the north don’t generally block the sun. Happy studying.

    The question mention solar resident and cost effective option.
    (C) is best answer because 1. It has south exposure to the sun path, 2. It doesn’t require extensive excavation and concrete because it’s on flat surface for cost effective option.

    Hi Brendan,

    The hill or pine trees will partially block the sun in all those schemes except C.

    Hope this helps.
