The correct answer is 1,000,000. This implies that the Earth can fit into the Sun approximately one million times. This answer is based on the vast difference in size between the Earth and the Sun. The Sun is much larger than the Earth, with a diameter of about 1.4 million kilometers, while the Earth has a diameter of only about 12,742 kilometers. Therefore, it is logical to conclude that the Earth can fit into the Sun multiple times, with the approximate number being one million.
