The captain of a ship was telling this interesting story:
"We traveled the sea far and wide. At one time, two of my sailors were standing on opposite sides of the ship.
One was looking west and the other one east. And at the same time, they could see each other clearly."
How can that be possible?

Both the Person where looking at each other but at the opp end of the ship.

This is possible if the person standing on the east looks west side and the person standing on the west looks east side.

Both were standing facing the Captain....
- The standing on Right was facing West of the Captain
- The Standing on Left was facing East of the Captain.........
Hence the sailors were standing on opposite sides of the ship but could see each other clearly at the same time
