When reading a thermometer in Fahrenheit: the long lines indicate 1 degree, the short lines indicate 0.2 degree.

In Celsius: the long lines indicate 1 degree or rather (0.5 degree) and the short lines indicate 0.1 degree.

I've included a link below to provide you with more information.

It really depends on the specific thermometer. We have ones that read by the 1 degree line for both F and C, but others that read only in one or the other temperature scale. It is best to look at the thermometer before deciding what the lines mean. Looking at the numbers marked at the lines will also help. I know that is not a definite answer, but science equipment can vary from one manufacturer to another.
