Hi Diana,

Thanks for writing to Dr. Math.

That's a good question. The answer is yes, it can. A zero-degree 
angle can be bisected into two zero-degree angles.

To understand why, think about what zero divided by two is.

Hope this helps. If you have other questions or you'd like to talk 
about this some more, please write back.
