    perfect circle                

    oblate spheroid               



  • Q2

    The apparent daily motion of stars and other celestial bodies across the sky caused by Earth’srotations about its axis is called ________.

    Diurnal motion           

    Sundial motion

    Annual motion

    Eccentric motion

  • Q3

    Which of the following statements is/are TRUE about early astronomical phenomena?    Statement I - The sun and moon are the most observable objects in the sky.    Statement II - Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn can be easily seen in the sky with the help of a telescope.

    Both statements are false.

    Both statements are true.                         

    Only statement II is true.                       

    Only statement I is true.

  • Q4

    Any theory of the solar system's structure (or the universe) in which Earth is assumed to be at the center of it all.





  • Q5

    All of the following belong to the Terrestrial Domain, EXCEPT.





  • Q6

    He considered the sun as the stationary center of the universe. He classified Earth as a planet just like Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.

    Nicolaus Copernicus              


    Claudius Ptolemy            

    Galileo Galilei               

  • Q7

    He compiled extensive data on the planet Mars, which would later prove crucial to Kepler in his formulation of the laws of planetary motion.

    Galileo Galilei               

    Nicolaus Copernicus           

    Tycho Brahe            

    Isaac Newton

  • Q8

    The principle is that, as a planet moves around its orbit, it sweeps out equal areas at equal times. This tells us that a planet moves faster when it is closer to the sun than when it is farther from the sun in its orbit.

    Kepler’s Second Law                            

    Kepler’s laws of planetary motion

    Kepler’s Third Law

    Kepler’s First Law                                

  • Q9

    The law states that the orbit of each planet around the sun is an ellipse with the sun at one focus.

    Law of Acceleration     

    Law of Planetary Motion   

    Law of Relativity     

  • Q11

    What is the straight-line motion caused by the gravitational pull of the earth?

    horizontal motion     

    law of motion

    free fall motion       

    projectile motion

  • Q12

    Which of the following statements is/are CORRECTabout Tycho Brahe?

    He determined the detailed motions of the planets more precisely.

    All of the above

    He compiled extensive data on the planet Mars.

    He devised the most precise instruments available for observing the heavens before the telescope's invention.

  • Q13

    Which of the following is an example of natural motion according to Aristotle?

    A pushed troll           

    A pulled bag            

    A smoke rises           

    A kicked soccer balls

    My weight is more, my mass is less.

    My weight is the same, my mass is less.

    My weight is more, my mass is the same.

    My weight is less, my mass is the same.

  • Q15
