Solution

No, I do not agree with the given statement. Because the moon completes its one revolution around the earth in around 27.3 days. It also rotates once on its axis in the same period of time. Its revolution and rotation are synchronized in such a way that only one side of the moon is visible from the earth. The other side of the moon can never be seen from the earth.
