. The change in seasons on the Earth occurs because


A: the distance between the Earth and the Sun is not constant.

B: the axis of rotation of the Earth is parallel to the plane of its orbit.

C: the axis of rotation of the Earth is perpendicular to the plane of its orbit.

D: the axis of rotation of the Earth is tilted with respect to the plane of its orbit.

 

Best Answer

Explanation:

The seasons are caused by the tilt of the Earth's axis. This axis, or imaginary line, would pass through the

Earth and be inclined due to the rotation of the Earth. Seasonal changes would occur not only on

Earth, but also on other worlds with slanted axis rotations.

Final Answer:

Hence, Option (D) is correct.
