Which of the following Planets is the brightest?

A. Mercury

B. Mars

C. Jupiter

D. Venus

Answer: Option D

Solution(By Examveda Team)

Venus is so bright because its thick clouds reflect most of the sunlight that reaches it (about 70%) back into space, and because it is the closest planet to Earth. Venus can often be seen within a few hours after sunset or before sunrise as the brightest object in the sky (other than the moon).
