. Name two objects other than planets which are members of the solar system.
Answer: a) Meteors
Meteors are small celestial objects that are seen as bright streaks of light in the sky. Due to the heat produced by the friction of the Earth’s atmosphere, the Meteors are burnt out while entering in. This causes the bright streaks in the sky. They are not planets.
The Asteroids are a collection of a huge number of small objects; gases and dust revolving around the sun. Between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, they occupy the large gap. These are not planets. They are the celestial bodies and are known as Asteroids.
