Correct Answer - Option 1 : Hydrogen and Helium

The correct answer is Hydrogen and Helium.

  • The sun is a big ball of gas and plasma.
    • Most of the gas 91 per cent is hydrogen.
    • It is converted into energy in the sun's core.

  •  The sun is composed of layers made up almost entirely of hydrogen and helium.
    • These gases carry out different functions in each layer, and the sun's layers are measured by their percentage of the sun's total radius.
    • Sun gives us light and heat to warm our planet Earth.
    • It is a huge ball of gas 100 times bigger than Earth and composed of 74% hydrogen and 23% helium.
    • All the rest of the elements on Earth make up only 3% of the mass of the Sun, and most of this is in the elements carbon, nitrogen and oxygen.
