Brightest planet in our solar system is ?

(1) Venus
(2) Mercury
(3) Mars
(4) Jupiter

Correct Answer : (1) Brightest planet in our solar system is Venus.

Explanation:

Venus, the second planet from the sun, is the hottest and brightest planet in our solar system. Venus has the highest albedo of any planet in our solar system.

Venus is the brightest planet in our solar system because it’s blanketed by highly reflective clouds and they reflects over 70 per cent of sunlight striking it.

The clouds in the atmosphere of Venus contain droplets of sulphuric acid, as well as acidic crystals suspended in a mixture of gases. Light bounces easily off the smooth surfaces of these spheres and crystals. Sunlight bouncing from these clouds is a big part of the reason that Venus is so bright.
