Umbra
Your Answer
B

Penumbra
Your Answer
C

Eclipse
Your Answer
D

Planet

Solution

The correct option is A
Umbra
The dark part of the shadow is the umbra, and the part that is a little lighter is the penumbra. They can be experienced on Earth, but more readily in space, such as during a solar eclipse, when the Moon moves in front of the Sun and leaves a shadow on Earth.
