Solution

## Explanation,Asteroids are rocky worlds revolving around the sun that are too small to be called planets. Asteroids are leftovers from the formation of our solar system about 4.6 billion years ago. Asteroids can reach as large as Ceres, which is $940$ kilometers (about $583$ miles) across.The three broad composition classes of asteroids are C-, S-, and M-types.Asteroid belt contains between $1.1$ million and $1.9$ million asteroids over a kilometer in diameter and millions of smaller asteroids.Hence, the asteroid belt is found between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.
