Ah, now I understand! Thank you for claring that up. I figured the largest circle had tp be the sun. That’s where my confusion came from. =)

I thought it was about the size of the ‘spheres’. But the answer does not add up to the sizes. What is the right reason behind the answer?
This big, fat, spoiler below explains the entire puzzle, its meaning, and its solution. DO NOT CLICK IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW THE SOLUTION AND ANSWER!!!
While admittedly it is not a diagram perfectly to scale, it is a representation of the 8 planets in our solar system in order from the sun from top to bottom: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune (Pluto has been omitted since it was 'reclassified' as a dwarf-planet some years ago). The topmost planet (Mercury) is the smallest in the solar system and is the smallest circle of the group. The fifth from the top (Jupiter) is the largest in the solar system and is the largest circle of the group.

The fourth circle from the top is darker than the rest and is obviously meant to be highlighted -- hence the solution lies in what the fourth circle represents, which is Mars.
So technically.... The fact that the planet is black, it had nothing to do with the fact that i searched "show me the darkest planet" just because it was highlighted???? It still makes no sense, I mean I had the idea right, I was like OK their planets, OK, let's name these planets, hence I named them all wrong cus I didn't think "oh they're in order in this book" I thought they were all scattered, and I'm over here comparing sizes one by one, and naming them all out of order. And then I think to myself "OK so Pluto is left out... So pluto was just named the 'dwarf planet' no longer a planet... So it must be Pluto!" now you say it was the highlighted planet..... Wow.... I feel so..... Lame, I made it such a big complicated puzzle.

😂 have to say that gave me a good giggle 😂
