Question 9 is also wrong semantically. Stars is plural, nebula is singular (although many stars are born in them - as individual nebula), therefore if the question is plural then the answer must also be plural, as in nebulae.

You need to be sure of your facts!
VENUS's year is longer than it's day NOT Jupiter.
It's day is Approx. 243 earth days
It's year is approx. 225 earth days
Question 4 is wrong

What Rahul dey said.
Venus has the longest day of any planet in our solar system. It completes one rotation every 243 Earth days. Its day lasts longer than its orbit. It orbits the Sun every 224.65 Earth days, so a day is nearly 20 Earth days longer than its year. thus #4 is INCORRECT

I got seven out of ten. I think I'm right in saying that both Venus and Mercury have years that are shorter than their days. Jupiter has a very long year (about 12 earth years). It comes into opposition about every 13 months. In fact, its opposition for 2016 is March 8th, just a week away now. Come to think of it, I think I read once that Jupiter's day is only 10 hours. So for the 12 years it takes to orbit the Sun, it makes numerous rotations! (I think if you divide 12 years by 10 hours, you'll get the result. Anyway, thanks for these quizzes; I like testing my knowledge. I love gazing up at the sky on a clear night; there's so much to see. I suppose you could call me an astronomy freak!

Number 4 is wrong. The correct answer is Venus. Venus completes one rotation every 243 Earth days and it orbits the sun every 224 earth days making one day, about 20 Earth days longer than its year.
