Solution

The correct options are
A A day is longer than a year
C The direction of its rotation is clockwise
Venus is peculiar because its rotation is clockwise (in the opposite sense of the Earth and all other planets except Uranus). Moreover, its rotation is very slow. It takes about 243 Earth days to spin around just once while it takes 225 earth days to go all the way around the sun.
