Please answer! The elliptical orbits of planets bring them closer to and farther from the Sun at different times. The closest (perihelion) and furtherst (aphelion) points are given for three planets. Use this data to answer these questions. Which inequality represents the distances d from the sun to Neptune? PLANET PARIHELION APHELION (IN 10^6 KM) (IN 10^6 KM) URANUS 2741.3 3003.6 NEPTUNE 4444.5 4545.7 PLUTO 4435.0 7304.3 A. 444.5 ≤ d ≤ 4545.7 B. d ≤ 4444.5 C. d = 4444.5 OR d ≥ 4545.7 D. d ≤ 4545.7

    d has to lie between 4444.5(perihelion) and 4545.7(apehelion) for neptune given in the question. So only option D is correct
