(2) Mars and Jupiter
(3) Jupiter and Saturn
(4) Saturn and Uranus

Correct Answer : (2) The asteroids revolve around the Sun in between Mars and Jupiter planets.

Explanation :

Asteroids, sometimes called minor planets, are small, rocky fragments left over from the formation of our solar system about 4.6 billion years ago.

Most of this ancient space rubble can be found orbiting the sun between Mars and Jupiter.

Asteroids range in size from Ceres, about 952 km (592 miles) in diameter, to bodies that are less than 1 km across. The total mass of all the asteroids is less than that of Earth’s Moon.

All these asteroids revolve around the Sun in elliptical orbits and move in the same direction as the major planets.
