    Explanation
    The outer planets refer to the four gas giants in our solar system, namely Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. These planets are located beyond the asteroid belt and are characterized by their large size, low density, and lack of solid surfaces. They are also known for their ring systems, numerous moons, and distinct atmospheres.

    The outer planets are gas giants.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "The outer planets are gas giants" is true. The outer planets in our solar system, namely Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, are classified as gas giants. These planets are predominantly made up of gases, such as hydrogen and helium, and do not have a solid surface like the inner rocky planets. Their massive sizes and thick atmospheres contribute to their classification as gas giants.

    Are the outer planets bigger than the inner planets?

    • A.

      No

    • B.

      Yes

    Correct Answer
    B. Yes
    Explanation
    The outer planets are indeed bigger than the inner planets. This is because the outer planets, also known as gas giants, are composed mostly of gases like hydrogen and helium, which make them much larger in size compared to the inner planets, which are primarily composed of rock and metal. The outer planets, such as Jupiter and Saturn, can be several times larger than the inner planets, like Earth and Mars.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The outer planets all have rings?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the outer planets in our solar system, namely Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, all have rings. These rings are made up of dust, ice, and other particles that orbit around the planets. While Saturn's rings are the most famous and prominent, the other outer planets also have less visible and less dense ring systems.
