    (Spelling counts)If an element is NOT a solid or a liquid it must be a:

    Correct Answer
    gas
    Explanation
    If an element is not in a solid or liquid state, it can only be in the gaseous state. Solids have a fixed shape and volume, while liquids have a fixed volume but can change shape. Gases, on the other hand, have neither a fixed shape nor volume and can expand to fill the entire space available to them. Therefore, if an element is not a solid or a liquid, the only remaining option is that it is a gas.

    (Spelling Counts!)What item orbiting around the Sun was "demoted" to a dwarf planet?

    Correct Answer
    Pluto
    Explanation
    Pluto was "demoted" to a dwarf planet. This means that it was once considered a full-fledged planet but was later reclassified as a dwarf planet. The decision to reclassify Pluto was made by the International Astronomical Union in 2006, based on new criteria for defining what constitutes a planet. As a result, Pluto no longer meets the criteria to be classified as a planet and is now considered a dwarf planet orbiting around the Sun.

    Something that rotates around something else is called a(n):

    • A.

      Planet

    • B.

      Moon

    • C.

      Orbiting Item

    • D.

      Stationary Item

    Correct Answer
    C. Orbiting Item
    Explanation
    An orbiting item refers to something that revolves or rotates around another object. In the context of celestial bodies, planets revolve around a star, while moons revolve around planets. However, the term "orbiting item" can also be used more broadly to describe any object that rotates around another object, such as a satellite orbiting the Earth or a spacecraft orbiting a planet. The term "stationary item" is not applicable here as it contradicts the concept of rotation or revolution.

    When something in space that takes up part of the environment is not a solid or liquid is deemed (or called):

    • A.

      Solid

    • B.

      Liquid

    • C.

      Gas

    Correct Answer
    C. Gas
    Explanation
    When something in space that takes up part of the environment is not a solid or liquid, it is called a gas. In space, the absence of gravity allows particles to move freely and spread out, resulting in a gas-like state. Unlike solids and liquids, gases do not have a fixed shape or volume and can easily expand or contract to fill the available space. Examples of gases in space include the atmosphere surrounding planets and stars, as well as interstellar clouds.

    The Outer Planets are nicknamed:

    • A.

      The Big Ones

    • B.

      The Gas Giants

    • C.

      The Gas Balls

    • D.

      The Big Gasses

    • E.

      Uranus

    Correct Answer
    B. The Gas Giants
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The Gas Giants." This nickname is given to the outer planets because they are primarily composed of gases, such as hydrogen and helium. These planets, namely Jupiter and Saturn, are much larger than the inner rocky planets like Earth and Mars. The term "Gas Giants" distinguishes them from the smaller terrestrial planets in our solar system. The other options, "The Big Ones," "The Gas Balls," and "The Big Gasses," are not commonly used nicknames for the outer planets. "Uranus" is one of the outer planets, but it is not a nickname for the group as a whole.

      Stars

    • D.

      Star Dust

    Correct Answer
    C. Stars
    Explanation
    Large balls of gas that are seen on Earth are known as stars. Stars are massive celestial bodies made up of hot gases like hydrogen and helium. They emit light and heat due to the nuclear fusion reactions happening at their core. Stars are visible from Earth as bright points of light in the night sky. They play a crucial role in the universe, as they are responsible for generating and distributing energy, and they also serve as the building blocks for galaxies.

    Correct Answer
    B. When tiny particles are seen from Earth.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "When tiny particles are seen from Earth." This explanation is supported by the fact that "Star Dust" refers to the small particles or grains that are found in outer space and are visible from Earth. These particles can be remnants of stars that have exploded or disintegrated over time.

      Inner Planets

    • B.

      Outer Planets

    Correct Answer
    B. Outer Planets
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Outer Planets" because gaseous planets refer to those planets that are primarily composed of gas, such as Jupiter and Saturn. These planets are located in the outer regions of our solar system, beyond the asteroid belt. In contrast, inner planets, such as Earth and Mars, are primarily composed of rock and metal.

      Inner Planet

    • B.

      Outer Planet

    Correct Answer
    A. Inner Planet
    Explanation
    Earth is classified as an inner planet because it is one of the four terrestrial planets in our solar system that are located closer to the Sun. Inner planets, also known as rocky or terrestrial planets, are characterized by their solid and dense composition. They have a thin atmosphere and a solid surface, making them distinct from the outer planets, which are gas giants with thick atmospheres and no solid surface.
