The days on Venus (rotations on its axis, i.e.sidereal days) are 243 Earth days long. About how long are its years (in Earth measurements)?

A365 days
B225 days
C402 days
D512 days

Correct Option: 2  

225 days
Venus has the longest rotation period of any planet in the solar system, longer than the time it takes the planet to orbit the sun. The length of a solar day, as distinct from a sidereal day, on Venus is 116.75 Earth days; a solar day is based on the position of the Sun, rather than on the spin of the planet itself.
