    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. 8
    Explanation
    There were 8 planets in 2007. This is based on the understanding that prior to 2006, Pluto was considered the ninth planet in our solar system. However, in 2006, the International Astronomical Union redefined the definition of a planet, and Pluto was reclassified as a dwarf planet. Therefore, in 2007, there were 8 recognized planets in our solar system.

    Which planet has the great red spot?

    • A.

      Jupiter

    • B.

      Mars

    • C.

      The red one

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Jupiter
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Jupiter. The Great Red Spot is a giant storm that has been observed on Jupiter for over 300 years. It is a high-pressure system that creates a large, swirling red spot on the planet's surface. Mars does not have a Great Red Spot, and "the red one" is not a specific planet. Therefore, the correct answer is Jupiter.

    Which planet has a large valcano on the surface?

    • A.

      Mars

    • B.

      The pink one

    • C.

      Planet x

    • D.

      Neptune

    Correct Answer
    A. Mars
    Explanation
    Mars is the correct answer because it is known to have the largest volcano in the solar system called Olympus Mons. This volcano is about 13.6 miles high, making it almost three times the height of Mount Everest. The presence of such a massive volcano on the surface of Mars suggests that it was once geologically active, and it provides valuable insights into the planet's past volcanic activity.

    Which planet has many large rings?

    • A.

      Saturn

    • B.

      Jupiter

    • C.

      The pink one

    Correct Answer
    A. Saturn
    Explanation
    Saturn is the correct answer because it is the planet in our solar system that is well-known for having many large rings. These rings are made up of ice particles, rocks, and dust, and they orbit around Saturn. The rings of Saturn are one of its most distinctive features and can be seen from Earth with a telescope. Jupiter, on the other hand, does have rings, but they are much smaller and less prominent compared to Saturn's. "The pink one" is not a planet and therefore cannot have rings.
