Accepted Solution

Answer:The correct option is Geocentric solar system.Step-by-step explanation:The correct option is Geocentric solar system.According to this system, the Earth is considered to be the center of the solar system. The Moon, the planets, the Sun, and the stars all rotate around the Earth (which stays still), with uniform circular motion. They compose the heavens, which are considered to be ethereal and unchanging. Ptolemy proposed his refined geocentric model. In the Ptolemaic universe, a planet moves in a small circle called an epicycle, and the center of the epicycle moves along a larger circle around the Earth.It was accepted until the 16th century.
