    Why does the Moon change its shape every night?

    A)  It is natural for moon to change its shape.

    B)  The atmosphere on moons surface differs every day, therefore it changes its shape.

    C)  It only appears that the moon is changing shape.

    D)  None of the above

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    [c] Moon doesn't change its shape. The part of the moon on which the shadow of the Earth falls remains away from the sunlight, and thus, it doesn't appear at all. As the Earth, the Sun and the Moon constantly revolve, the part of the Moon away from the sunlight increases or decreases.
