Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

     What is the largest planet in the solar system?

    • A.

      Earth

    • B.

      Jupiter

    • C.

      Neptune

    • D.

      Moon

    Correct Answer
    B. Jupiter
    Explanation
    Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. It has a diameter of about 86,881 miles, which is more than 11 times the diameter of Earth. Jupiter's massive size is due to its composition, primarily consisting of hydrogen and helium gases. Its immense gravitational pull also contributes to its size. Jupiter's size allows it to have a strong magnetic field and numerous moons.

    What is the hottest planet in the solar system?

    • A.

      Mercury

    • B.

      Venus

    • C.

      Uranus

    • D.

      Saturn

    Correct Answer
    A. Mercury
    Explanation
    Mercury is the correct answer because it is the closest planet to the Sun, making it the hottest planet in the solar system. Its proximity to the Sun allows it to receive intense heat and radiation, resulting in extremely high temperatures. The planet's thin atmosphere is unable to retain this heat, causing dramatic temperature fluctuations between its scorching hot daytime and freezing cold nighttime.

    How many moons does Venus have?

    • A.

      4

    • B.

      2

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    D. None
    Explanation
    Venus does not have any moons. It is one of the four terrestrial planets in our solar system, along with Mercury, Earth, and Mars, and none of these planets have any natural satellites. The correct answer is "None."

    Which is the only planet that could float on water?

    • A.

      Saturn

    • B.

      Earth

    • C.

      Uranus

    • D.

      Mercury

    Correct Answer
    A. Saturn
    Explanation
    Saturn is the only planet that could float on water due to its low density. It has a specific gravity less than 1, which means that its average density is less than the density of water. This is because Saturn is mostly composed of hydrogen and helium gases, making it less dense than the other planets. Therefore, if a body of water large enough were found, Saturn would be able to float on it.

    Which is the closest planet to the Sun?

    • A.

      Earth

    • B.

      Jupiter

    • C.

      Mars

    • D.

      Mercury

    Correct Answer
    D. Mercury
    Explanation
    Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun. It orbits the Sun at an average distance of about 36 million miles, which is much closer than any other planet in our solar system. Due to its proximity to the Sun, Mercury experiences extreme temperatures, with its surface reaching scorching temperatures during the day and freezing temperatures at night. Its close proximity to the Sun also means that Mercury has a relatively short year, completing one orbit around the Sun in just 88 Earth days.
