  16. This is my answer for #8 question of the science quiz, do not copy word for word because teachers will find out and know that you are cheating.
    "Outer planets do not lose lighter gas in their atmospheres because the outer planets have a lot more mass, so because they have a larger mass, they have more gravity to hold down their gases in their atmosphere."
    That is, I think, the answer. You can check to make sure. If I am wrong please don't say mean things or anything like that. I am doing this because I want to help you understand the question. I gave you the answer but you have to put the wording in a different way, so that you don't get caught cheating. So, yeah your welcome. I will not give you the answer to #9, though, since I don't know the answer to that question, yet. I am doing the quiz right now, and I have a cold at the same time. So, don't feel bad for me, I'm fine....again your welcome for giving you a little bit of the answer. OwO. :)
