For some reason, I just(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); can'tseem to get this problem right even though I go through it tons of times and I earnestly believe that my answer is correct, but I guess not.

"Use Kepler's Laws to determine the comparison between various items shown in the figure. Assume the figure is drawn to scale.

(Select G-Greater than, L-Less than, E-Equal to, If the first is G and the rest E, enter GEEEE)."

A) A planet with half the average distance to the star would have ..... half the period.

B) If area 1 and 3 are equal the time to go from D to E is ..... the time to go from A to B

C) The speed at A ..... the speed at D

D) The planets's average speed between D and E is ..... the average speed between A and B

E) Time to go from B to C is ..... time from A to B

I've come up with all these answers andallare wrong. I even narrowed it down to believe that the last 4 answers are "EGLE", but it seems it's wrong.

These are all the possibilities I've come up with, and nope. Still incorrect.
