Correct Answer - Option 1 : Jupiter

The correct answer is Option 1, i.e Jupiter.

  • The planet Jupiter has the shortest day of all the eight major planets in the Solar System.
  • It spins around on its axis once every 9 hr 55 min 29.69 sec.
  • Jupiter has a small axial tilt of only 3.13 degrees, meaning it has little seasonal variation during its 11.86year-long orbit of the Sun.
  • In Saturn, one day is completed in 10h 42m.
  • In Mercury, one spin around its axis is completed in 1408 hours!
  • In Neptune, it's completed in 16 hours.
