Jupiter

• C.

Saturn

• D.

Rate this question:

• 3.

Planet's that are further from the Sun move; more slowly and they take more time to complete an orbit.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Planets that are further from the Sun move more slowly and take more time to complete an orbit because of the gravitational pull exerted by the Sun. According to Kepler's laws of planetary motion, the farther a planet is from the Sun, the weaker the gravitational force it experiences, resulting in a slower orbital speed. This is why outer planets like Neptune and Uranus have much longer orbital periods compared to inner planets like Mercury and Venus. Therefore, the statement is true.

Rate this question:

• 4.

How long does it take Mercury to complete an orbit round the Sun ?

• A.

99 Earth Days

• B.

88 Earth Years

• C.

88 Earth Days

• D.

164 Earth Days

• E.

87.5 Earth Days

C. 88 Earth Days
Explanation
Mercury takes approximately 88 Earth days to complete one orbit around the Sun. This is because Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun and has a shorter orbital period compared to other planets in our solar system. The gravitational pull of the Sun causes Mercury to move at a faster speed, resulting in a shorter orbital period.

Rate this question:

• 5.

How long does it take Earth to make one complete turn on its axis (a day) ?

• A.

24 minutes

• B.

48 hours

• C.

60 minutes

• D.

1 day

• E.

24 hours

E. 24 hours
Explanation
The correct answer is 24 hours. This is because Earth takes approximately 24 hours to make one complete rotation on its axis, resulting in a day.

Rate this question:

• 6.

How many hours are in a week (7 days) ?

• A.

7 hours

• B.

70 hours

• C.

168 hours

• D.

68 hours

• E.

1168 hours

C. 168 hours
Explanation
There are 24 hours in a day and 7 days in a week. To calculate the total number of hours in a week, we multiply 24 by 7, which equals 168 hours.

Rate this question:

• 7.

How many hours are ther in a month, which has 31 days ?

• A.

744 hours

• B.

744 minutes

• C.

744 secounds

• D.

744 days

• E.

744 weeks

A. 744 hours
Explanation
There are 24 hours in a day, so in a month with 31 days, there would be 31 multiplied by 24, which equals 744 hours.

Rate this question:

• 8.

How many days there are in a year ?

• A.

366 days

• B.

365 days

• C.

364.5 days

• D.

365.5 days

• E.

367.5 days

B. 365 days
Explanation
The correct answer is 365 days. In a regular year, there are 365 days, consisting of 12 months with varying numbers of days. However, in a leap year, which occurs every four years, there is an extra day added to the month of February, making it 366 days in total.

Rate this question:

• 9.

How long does it take Neptune to orbit the Sun ?

• A.

164 hours

• B.

164 Earth years

• C.

164 secounds

• D.

164 Earth days

• E.

164 minutes

B. 164 Earth years
Explanation
Neptune takes 164 Earth years to orbit the Sun. This is because Neptune is located much farther from the Sun compared to Earth, so it takes a significantly longer time to complete one orbit.

Rate this question:

• 10.

When the Northern hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun what season is it ?

• A.

Autumn

• B.

Spring

• C.

Winter

• D.

Summer going into Winter

• E.

Summer

E. Summer
Explanation
When the Northern hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun, it experiences summer. This is because the tilt of the Earth's axis causes the Sun's rays to hit the Northern hemisphere at a more direct angle, resulting in longer days and warmer temperatures. This phenomenon occurs around June 21st, known as the summer solstice, in the Northern hemisphere.

Rate this question:

• 11.

When the Souther hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun, what season is it for the Northern hemisphere ?

• A.

Winter going into Spring

• B.

Summer

• C.

Winter

• D.

Autumn

• E.

Spring

C. Winter
Explanation
When the Southern hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun, it is winter for the Northern hemisphere. This is because the tilt of the Earth's axis causes one hemisphere to receive more direct sunlight while the other receives less. When the Southern hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun, the Northern hemisphere is tilted away, resulting in less sunlight and colder temperatures, which is characteristic of winter.
