A new solar system with two planets of equal mass  Planet X and Planet Y  is discovered. Planet X is closest to the sun.
What is the sun's gravitational pull on Planet Y as compared with Planet X?
A.
Because Planet Y is farther from the sun, the sun's gravitational pull on Planet Y is less than the sun's gravitational pull on Planet X.
B.
The sun's gravitational pull on Planet Y is equal to its gravitational pull on Planet X because distance does not affect the sun's gravity.
C.
Because Planet Y is farther from the sun, the sun's gravitational pull on P
