    • B.

      Mars

    • C.

      Venus

    • D.

      Earth

    Correct Answer
    A. Jupiter
    Explanation
    Jupiter is the correct answer because it is the largest planet in our solar system. It is known for its massive size and is more than twice as large as all the other planets combined. Jupiter's immense size is due to its strong gravitational pull, which allows it to gather a large amount of gas and dust during its formation. This makes Jupiter a gas giant, consisting mostly of hydrogen and helium. Its size also contributes to its distinct features, such as its iconic Great Red Spot and numerous moons.

They were both discovered in 1877 by American astronomer Asaph Hall. These two moons are irregularly shaped and are thought to be captured asteroids. They play a significant role in the study of Mars and its gravitational influence on them provides valuable information about the planet's interior and evolution.

    The correct answer is Mars & Jupiter. The Asteroid Belt is a region in our solar system located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. It is filled with numerous small rocky objects, known as asteroids, which orbit the Sun. These asteroids are remnants from the early formation of our solar system and their presence in the Asteroid Belt is due to the gravitational influence of Jupiter, which prevented them from coalescing into a planet.

As a result, it was reclassified as a dwarf planet.
