    Yeah ive tried multple attempts of looking online for resources. It simply doesnt make sense to me...I have a blurry picture which i can kind of sort of make out what 2 of the answers are but not the others Perhaps you may be able to decipher the rest?

    An opposition is always 180 degrees to the Sun.

    from the picture it would appear that "c" elongation is 0°

    B elongation appears to be West 90°

    Yes C elongation angle would be 0

    It would be called a conjunction.

    So C is done. For B, any quadrature (no matter eastern or western) is 90 degrees.

    Just conjunction?

    not superior conjunction or inferior conjunction?

    No the picture you have a superior conjunction (attached file has a hypothetical superior planet in it). Dont worry about the picture in the right.

    I do not have a background with this, so you can write that if your teacher mentions superior conjunction or superior opposition.

    Now you have to plot it using the letters.

    Plot it ? Plot what where? I have to plot things on the picture?

    Opposition is 180 degrees, so it should be near the earth.

    Well that sucks...I have a second problem where i already filled out the box but i suppose i need to plot on that one as well...

    You know where to plot the opposition right? It is opposite to the conjunction.

    Yes! From B to earth to sun creates a 90 degree angle. west. From D to Earth to Sun creates a 120 degree angle east
