a. Nepal
b. Tibet
c. Norway
d. Iceland


ANSWER: See Answer
 
The case where there is 6 months day, and 6 months night could only happen on poles because The Earth is tilted on its axis.
The pole which is away (opposite direction of the sun) from the Sun remains in complete darkness till it comes in front of the sun.
So we conclude that countries at the poles have 6 months day, and 6 months night.
So countries close to this region have such cases as Alaska, Antarctica, Norway, etc.
Norway, the northernmost inhabited region of Europe, there is no sunset from approximately 19 April to 23 August. The extreme sites are the poles, where the sun can be continuously visible for half the year. The North Pole has midnight sun for 6 months from late March to late September.
