    Have you ever seen the record player
    playing a song or a speech ?
    A small pin at the end of a handle will be touching the recorded path of a moving circular plate ( called the gramophone plate ).
    The question is how many recording lines has a gramophone plate.

    No idea.
    As far as the groove goes, it is a spiral line, right so would be a single spiral line. I thought that is the recording line, which would be one line only!
    I have no idea about the recording lines, is it different!:confundio1:

    I have no idea what you were expecting!:(
    But if there is a spiral line then it has one start and one end! So would be a single spiral line!:confused:
    I might be totally wrong! Infact don't know much about gramophone!:oops:

    Hm, if you say up and up-- I will land up with infinity!:flushed::lol:
    I am totally lost, you seem to be interested in HMV, belts and gramophones! No harm, but I haven't a clue!o_O
    Did google them, only to find confusing terminologies and rpms. No mention of recording lines. Just that the stylus moves over the record.
    Sorry, I give up!:oops:

    You are right , but not absolutely right.
    You are right in saying that the recording groove is a single line , though a spiral one.
    Our Maths Teachers ( even all the teachers ) would advise us , after writing the answer , go through it once again for anything left out . Now I have to ask you to go through the question also.
    How many lines ....on a gramophone PLATE .
    THE PLATE HAS TWO SIDES AND HENCE THE ANSWER IS " TWO LINES ".
