    • B.

      Quarter Moon

    • C.

      Full Moon

    • D.

      Crescent Moon

    Correct Answer
    C. Full Moon
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Full Moon because a full moon occurs when the moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun, and its entire illuminated side is facing us. This results in a bright, fully illuminated moon that appears as a complete circle in the night sky.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    This is a _________ moon.

    • A.

      New

    • B.

      Crescent

    • C.

      Full

    • D.

      Quarter

    Correct Answer
    B. Crescent
    Explanation
    A crescent moon refers to the shape of the moon when it is less than half illuminated. It appears as a thin, curved sliver of light on the right or left side of the moon. This phase occurs after the new moon phase and before the first quarter phase. The correct answer, "Crescent," accurately describes the moon's appearance in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    A moon that is NOT illuminated is a ________moon.

    • A.

      New

    • B.

      Crescent

    • C.

      Full

    • D.

      Quarter

    • E.

      Gibbous

    Correct Answer
    A. New
    Explanation
    A moon that is not illuminated is called a "New" moon. During this phase, the moon is positioned between the Earth and the Sun, making the side of the moon facing Earth appear dark because it is not receiving any sunlight. This phase marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    This moon is a _______ moon

    • A.

      Full

    • B.

      New

    • C.

      Gibbous

    • D.

      Quarter

    Correct Answer
    C. Gibbous
    Explanation
    A gibbous moon refers to a phase of the moon where it is more than half but less than fully illuminated. It appears as a rounded shape with a small portion of darkness. This phase occurs after the first quarter and before the full moon. Therefore, the given correct answer is "Gibbous."

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    When half the moon is illuminated it is a______ 

    • A.

      New Moon

    • B.

      Quarter Moon

    • C.

      Half Moon

    • D.

      Full Moon

    Correct Answer
    B. Quarter Moon
    Explanation
    When half the moon is illuminated, it is referred to as a Quarter Moon. This phase occurs when the moon is at a 90-degree angle from the Earth and the sun, causing only one-half of the moon's surface to be visible from our perspective on Earth. It is called a "quarter" moon because it is one-quarter of the way through the lunar cycle, between a New Moon and a Half Moon.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The sun rotates around Earth

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    B. FALSE
    Explanation
    The statement that the sun rotates around Earth is false. In reality, it is the Earth that rotates on its axis, causing the appearance of the sun moving across the sky from east to west. This misconception was prevalent in ancient times when people believed that the Earth was the center of the universe. However, modern scientific observations and evidence have confirmed that the sun is stationary and it is the Earth's rotation that creates the illusion of the sun's movement.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The Earth revolves around the Sun

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the Earth does indeed revolve around the Sun. This is known as the phenomenon of revolution, where the Earth orbits the Sun in an elliptical path. This revolution takes approximately 365.25 days to complete, resulting in the length of a year. The gravitational force between the Sun and the Earth is what keeps the Earth in its orbit, causing it to continuously revolve around the Sun.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The Moon revolves around the Earth

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    The statement "The Moon revolves around the Earth" is true. The Moon is Earth's only natural satellite and it orbits around the Earth in a regular and predictable path. This motion is called revolution, and it takes approximately 27.3 days for the Moon to complete one revolution around the Earth. The gravitational pull between the Earth and the Moon keeps the Moon in its orbit.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The Earth revolves around the moon

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    B. FALSE
    Explanation
    The given statement is incorrect. The Earth does not revolve around the moon. In fact, it is the opposite - the moon revolves around the Earth. The Earth and the moon are part of the same system, known as the Earth-Moon system, where the moon orbits around the Earth due to gravitational forces.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    On this flag is an example of a _____ moon.

    • A.

      Full

    • B.

      Half

    • C.

      Crescent

    • D.

      Quarter

    Correct Answer
    C. Crescent
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Crescent". A crescent moon is a phase of the moon where less than half of the moon is illuminated. It appears as a thin, curved shape resembling a crescent. This is in contrast to a full moon, where the entire face of the moon is visible, or a half moon, where exactly half of the moon is illuminated. Therefore, the flag must have a representation of a crescent moon on it.

    Correct Answer
    B. Sun
    Explanation
    The Sun is the center of our solar system. It is a star that provides heat and light to the planets, including Earth. The Moon orbits around the Earth, while the Earth orbits around the Sun. The Sun's immense gravitational pull keeps all the planets in their orbits. Therefore, the Sun is rightly considered the center of our solar system.

    Correct Answer
    B. Quarter
    Explanation
    The moon is referred to as a "quarter" when it is at the first or third quarter phase. This means that only half of the moon is illuminated and visible from Earth. The other half is in shadow. The term "quarter" signifies that the moon is at a point where it is one-quarter of the way through its lunar cycle.
