Answer: Option C

Solution(By Examveda Team)

The planets are kept in motion in their respective orbits by Gravitation and centrifugal force. The Sun's gravity pulls on the planets, just as Earth's gravity pulls down anything that is not held up by some other force and keeps you and me on the ground.
