Ptolemy believed that Earth was at the center of the universe. Kepler believed that the sun was at the focus of Earth's elliptical orbit. Which of these statements best explains why Ptolemy and Kepler made different observations about the solar system? The focus of their study was different. They studied outdated theories and evidences. They could not match the data with the observations. They believed in proposing different theories to strengthen science.

    Ptolemy said that the Earth is the center of the universe for it is stated in the Bible that the center of Creation, which is the universe, is man. And man, on the other hand, is on Earth that is why Earth is considered the center of the Universe.
