The Moon orbits in a path around the hemisphere not facing the Sun.

B)
The hemisphere experiencing winter is the farthest away from the Sun.

  1. My findings I googled on this and look what I got ,you can check Google your self and see for yourself

    Regardless of the time of year, the northern and southern hemispheres always experience opposite seasons. This is because during summer or winter, one part of the planet is more directly exposed to the rays of the Sun (see Fig. 1) than the other, and this exposure alternates as the Earth revolves in its orbit.

    Answer D fits in
