Your Answer
A
Eclipse
Correct Answer
B
Ecliptic
Your Answer
C
Orbital path
Your Answer
D
Zodiac

Solution

The correct option is B Ecliptic
The ecliptic is the circular path on the celestial sphere that the Sun appears to follow over the course of a year; it is the basis of the ecliptic coordinate system. The term also refers to the plane of this path, which is coplanar with Earth's orbit around the Sun (and hence the Sun's apparent orbit around Earth).
