(4) Jupiter

Correct Answer : (3) Planet Venus is called evening star.

Explanation :

Venus is the brightest of all planets.

It is seen brightly in the eastern sky before sunrise and in the western sky just after sunset. Therefore it is often called the morning star as well as the evening star, although it is not a star.

Venus, evening star, is Earth’s nearest planetary neighbour. It is the brightest planet in the night sky.

Venus is the second planet from the sun and the nearest planet to the earth. It is also known as Earth’s twin because of the comparable size of the two planets. Due to the high content of carbon dioxide in its atmosphere, it is the hottest planet of our solar system.
