    Q.

    The gravitational impact of the moon and the sun can be seen when observing the Earth’s tides. The diagram shows a snapshot of where the high tides can occur due to the moon's alignment with the Earth at that moment.

    Why are the tides more affected by the moon’s gravitational pull than the sun’s?

    answer choices

    The moon is larger than the sun, giving it a stronger gravitational pull on the Earth.

    The moon is closer to the Earth, giving it a stronger gravitational pull on the Earth.

    The sun’s gravitational pull is spread evenly among all planets in the solar system, but the moon’s gravity only affects the Earth.

    The rock that composes the moon creates a special gravitational pull that affects the liquids found on the Earth.
