The outermost layer of the Sun is called ?

(1) Chromosphere
(2) Photosphere
(3) Corona
(4) Lithosphere

Correct Answer : (3) The outermost layer of the Sun is called Corona.

Explanation :

The Corona i.e. outermost layer of the Sun is a low density cloud of plasma with higher transparency than the inner layers.

The white corona is a million times less bright than the inner layers of the sun, but is many times larger.

A corona is a type of plasma “atmosphere” of the Sun or other celestial body, extending millions of kilometers into space, most easily seen during a total solar eclipse, but also observable in a coronagraph.

Corona starts at about 2100 km above the photosphere. Corona isn’t visible from the earth (except during solar eclipse).
