    Perhaps this question would me more clear, if it replaced the word "revolution" with the word "orbit". It turns out that the answer is C. Its period of rotation is the same as its period of orbit. This is true whether you measure this relative to distant stars, or whether you measure this relative to Earth's solar orbit.

    Actually the rotation is very close to its orbital period known as a synchrous rotation,

    C. is stating that the orbital and revolution period is the same. That is what I was trying to say also.
