    Correct Answer
    B. Waning
    Explanation
    A waning moon refers to the lunar phase during which the visible portion of the Moon's illuminated side decreases or diminishes as observed from Earth. This occurs after the full moon phase as the Moon starts moving towards its last quarter and eventually to the new moon. The waning phase is characterized by a decreasing crescent shape as less of the sunlit side becomes visible each night.

    Correct Answer
    A. First Quarter
    Explanation
    The quarter moon following the full moon is the first quarter. The first quarter moon, also known as the waxing crescent, marks a transitional phase in the lunar cycle. During this period, the illuminated portion of the moon is on the right side, and it appears as a slender crescent shape in the western sky after sunset.
