My answers:

  • Science -

    I think the ones marked * are incorrect.

    *2B - think about it - the moon is directly opposite the sun, so the earth casts its shadow. The moon is full.
    4D (see #1!)
    *5A (see #3!)
    *7C - the illuminated portion is more than half the circle
    *8A - none of it hits earth; the moon is dark
    *9B - during the southern summer, in some places the sun never sets at all, while near the north pole, in some places the sun never rises. (The underlying reason is the tilt of the earth's axis.)
