Jupiter is farther from the sun than Earth is. Based on this fact, what can you conclude about the lengths and durations of Jupiterâ€™s orbit?
 A Jupiter has a larger orbit, and it takes longer time to travel around the sun. B Jupiter has a larger orbit, and it takes less time to travel around the sun. C Jupiter has a smaller orbit, and it takes a longer time to travel around the sun. D None of the above
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -Jupiter is farther from the sun than Earth is. Based on this fact, what can you conclude about the lengths and duration of Jupiterâ€™s orbit? Jupiter has a larger orbit, and it takes a longer time to travel around the sun.

Detailed explanation-2: -Astronomical units also make it easy to think about distances between solar system objects. They make it easy to see that Jupiter orbits five times farther from the Sun than Earth, and that Saturn is twice as far from the Sun as Jupiter.

Detailed explanation-3: -The UCR scientists found that if Jupiter was much closer to the sun than its current distance of around 461 million miles (742 million kilometers) it could cause extreme tilting on Earth.

Detailed explanation-4: -At its farthest, the gas giant lies 601 million miles (968 million km) away. Jupiter takes 11.86 Earth-years to complete one orbit of the sun. As Earth travels around the sun, it catches up with Jupiter once every 398.9 days, causing the gas giant to appear to travel backwards in the night sky.
