Hint: A clockwise motion is one that proceeds in the same direction as a clock's hands: from the top to the right, then down and then to the left, and back up to the top.

Complete step-by-step answer:
Given,$\dfrac{1}{2}$of a revolution which means ${180^ \circ }$turn.
If we start from facing towards east and are to take $\dfrac{1}{2}$of a revolution, then we will move downwards and pass through south facing also towards south and stop at west with face also towards west. Or we can say, it will be a simple ${180^ \circ }$ turn.

Note: Consider all directions while solving the given question. Also, draw the different directions out. Always consider yourself as facing north or as given in the question. Solve the question accordingly. Now your left hand is on the west side and the right hand is east side.
