1. 1000 km elliptical orbit

2. 1000 km equatorial orbit

3. 200 km Sun synchronous orbit

4 100 km polar orbit

Q2. The significant milestone achieved on the 14th of November 2008 by the Chandryaan I mission was :

1. Placing of Chandrayaan I in its 100 km polar orbit around the Moon.

2. Soft landing of the Moon Impact Probe on the Moon

2. Preparing a mineral atlas of the Moon.

3. Mapping the Moon through X-Ray Spectrocopy

4. Measuring the radiation environment near the surface of the Moon.

Q4. One of crucial questions that the Chandrayaan mission is supposed to be looking for answers to, is related to the origin of the Moon. One necessary ingredient in answering this question that could be provided by the Chandrayaan mission is

1. Rocks and soil samples from the surface of the Moon.

2. Radio observations of the Moon.

3. A complete mineralogical mapping of the surface regions of the Moon.
