Question

What are meteors?
  1. They are a bigger version of asteroids.
  2. They are the rocks which fade in the air while falling to the Earth's surface.
  3. They are the rocks which hit the Earth's surface.
  4. They are the rocks that revolve in the asteroid belt.


Solution

The correct option is B They are the rocks which fade in the air while falling to the Earth's surface.
Meteors, also known as shooting stars, are pieces of dust and debris from space that burn up in the Earth's atmosphere, where they can create bright streaks across the night sky. When the Earth passes through the dusty trail of a comet or asteroid's orbit, the many streaks of light in the sky are known as a meteor shower.
