Solution

The correct option is B False

Stars:

  1. Stars are celestial bodies that are capable of emitting their own light and heat.
  2. All the stars are not the same distance from our Earth.
  3. For example, Sun is the nearest star to the Earth and the next nearest star is 4.3 light-years away, where a light-year is a distance traveled by light in one year (1 light-year is 10 trillion kilometers)
  4. The position of stars will keep changing as seen from the earth’s surface, beside the Polestar whose position is fixed.

Therefore, the given statement is false.
