3rd Set Of Simple Quiz You On Planets And Solar System

The Solar System is made up of all the planets that orbit our Sun and also consists of moons, comets, asteroids, minor planets, and dust and gas. In a  Solar System, every object near it  orbits or revolves around the Sun. This is on account of fact that  Sun is so large, its powerful gravity attracts all the other objects in the Solar System towards it.

3rd objective type questions to quiz you on planets and solar system

Comments ( 39 )

  1. A. As Earth passes another planet, its gravitational pull slows down the other planet so that it appears to be traveling backward.

    B.When planets are farther from the Sun, they move slower than when they are nearer the Sun; it is during this slower period that they appear to move backwards.

    C.The other planets never really appear to move backward; the background stars shift due to Earth’s revolution around the Sun.

    D.As Earth passes another planet, the other planet appears to move backward with respect to the background stars, but the planet’s motion does not really change.

    E.Apparent retrograde motion is an illusion created by turbulence in Earth’s atmosphere.

  2. I am planning to be an Irish teacher. For A level, i will be studying Irish, Geography, Technology and Religion. However, to be a teacher,I am told that I must have an A level in a science subject. Would geography count as a science?

  3. Earth has been the only planet since millions of years with the proof of life.All other planets are merely assumptions by astrologers that earth-like planets exist beyond our Milky way. Recently an earth like planet was discovered by astrologers which was supposed to have life, fire,water and Oxygen like gas.But that is all a foolish assumption.

  4. I know geography affects what’s grown everywhere, but what foods are produced because of the specific geography in England. Thanks!

  5. I am helping my daughter with a science project and would like to know specifically why planets that are closest to the sun orbit faster than further planets? I am having difficulty finding a specific explaination. Serious answers only. Thank you!

  6. In 1967, the Sun, the Moon, and five planets visible with the naked eye were all in conjunction with each other during a solar eclipse. This made the viewing of Mercury, Mars, Saturn, and what two other planets possible?

  7. The full question is: Research how the geography of your selected country impacted on one event from pre-colonial, colonial or modern history. (eg. Did the geography affect how the country was colonized)

    My selected country is Russia (the Asian part) and this is due on monday the 25th. Please could i get some help.

    Scientist are saying that our solar system does not go straight out, but ‘bends’.
    Wouldn’t that mean, that at some point it will make almost a full circle back to the beginning?

  9. How much solar system setup for running power a home might costs ? I am from India and their are too many power cuts , so i have decided to setup solar system instead of buy a generetor or invertor , and can any one tell me which company in India supply Solar system setup for home

  10. What are the general features of the solar system, and the solar nebula theory, and give evidence of planetary formation in other places in the universe

  11. Geologists generally agree that the Earth has been hit many times by other objects in the solar system, and most predict that another object will again strike the Earth in the near future. Does our knowledge of the solar system give us a better chance of surviving such a catastrophe? How? What other benefit is it to know the solar system better? How can the position of sun, moon, and planets help us to know our position on Earth? How does knowing the conditions on other planets help us to appreciate Earth? Could there be life on other bodies in our solar system? Why or why not?

  12. I would like to go to an american university to study geography (human geography is the section). I live in the UK so im not sure if americans call it something different? But what are the best Universities in USA for studying geography?

  13. What made the planets move through space and what caused them to form gravity and a magnetic field and all that complex stuff. And how come earth is the only planets with life in the solar system?
    I am a christian so no big bang stuff.

  14. Both geography and trade played an important role in the development of early African societies. Select one East African society and one West African society from this unit to write about. Your essay should be at least 750 words.

    When the earth is overpopulated there will be migrations of people to live on other planets which will be terraformed for future homes.How many planets are habitable for the human race?

  16. My friend keeps saying her grandad is a geography professer and an expert in plate tectonics, and amoungst other things claims he discovered a geological ice age.

    None of this sounds right, particually the last bit, surely thats geology, not geography, physical geography only deals with the earths physical features and boundaries? I dont think its a deliberate lie, i just dont think shes getting it quite right.

    I’m looking at undergraduate degrees and definitely want to do something environment based but want to know the difference between environmental science and environmental geography. I like geography and the alternative would be to do just a physical geography degree but the EnvSci has caught my eye.
    I’m studying Geography, Chemistry, English Lit and French for A Level if that helps which one may be best – Environmental Science is not offered as an A Level at my sixth form.

  18. I know the scientific understandings of how the solar system was started, by why, and who/what created the solar system? Explain yourself. If you think it was god, who is god? Explain yourself.

  19. So I installed a solar system I bought at harbor freight and was planning on getting the rest of the panels later. It says to leave the regulator on only when your at home. I was thinking what is the difference between my system and the $10,000 system that a solar company would install in houses.

  20. One of the major concepts that they taught us in geography was how important the physical geography of a country is in contributing to a country’s wealth and prosperity. At one point, England ruled about a fourth of the world, so what, geographically contributed to its success?

    Apparently, there are material planets in hinduism where different demigods/deities/devas reside like the planet Bramhaloka. What exactly are they. Are they just different planets with higher beings of life form? Can any of these planets be proven scientifically, because according to hinduism they exist in this material universe.

  24. Hi everyone, I’m currently in high school and I’m doing the International Bacaloriate, IB. I am planning to study Geography at university, and I have to choose between doing the higher or lower level maths. I am not very good at maths and i am sure i will have difficulties doing higher level maths but i will be willing to do it if it is necessary for a geography degree.
    So how important is maths for a geography degree? Can i take the lower level maths or must i do the higher level?

  25. How much space is between planetary systems? I think the next closest one is Alpha Centauri. How far is that once you leave the solar system? I know that voyager spacecraft left our solar system and is somewhere in deep space; can it ever get to another solar system? or are they all just too far away?

  26. Our solar system has 8 planets, and some have 1 or 2 planets. I want to know what the average number of planets in a solar system is.

  27. What role does geography play in understanding the world today?
    It’s for my AP Geography entry composition. This essay will determine whether i make it into AP Human Geography. PLEASE HELPPP.

    C) Theories of the solar system are entirely based on the many irregularities found among the planets and moons.
    D) The solar system is chaotic, with irregularities the rule.
    E) They introduce a need for flexibility in theories of the solar system’s origin.

    In the outer solar system, which is called the Oort Cloud, objects rotate randomly. So why do objects that are closer to the sun rotate on the same plane?

  34. How do you think the geography of the early settlements affected the economy in the colonies. Do you think that geography has the same impact on our economy today?

    Just curious.

    Im talking about in the beginning. When they settled in the new world.
    And why they wanted the land.

  37. I need to make a model of the solar system. It needs to be to scale. I don’t understand at all how to do that, and my teacher is no help.

    She said no 3-d models or styro-foam balls. So, basically I need it to be 2-D on a poster board, but it has to be creative as possible!

    Could anyone give me ideas on how I would go about this, and how I make it to scale?

    Thank you very much.
