The term 'Earth's Twin' is used to describe which of the following planets?

Options :
  1. Jupiter
  2. Venus
  3. Mercury
  4. Mars

Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 2


Venus is sometimes called 'Earth's Twin' because Venus and Earth are almost the same size, have about the same mass (they weigh about the same), and have a very similar composition (are made of the same material). They are also neighboring planets. However, Venus and Earth are also very different. Venus has an atmosphere that is about 100 times thicker than Earth's and has surface temperatures that are extremely hot. Venus does not have life or water oceans like Earth does. Venus also rotates backwards compared to Earth and the other planets.
