I believe for the first question you could use crater count and radioactive decay... I don't know the third.
What did the thermometer say to the graduated cylinder?
"You may have graduated, but I have many degrees"

What did you mean by relative or absolute?

There are two broad divisions of dating. Relative gives the age in relation to another object. Absolute gives the actual, numerical age.
Examples:
Relative: Rock A is ~100 years older than Rock B.
Absolute: Rock A is 200 years old.

1. The diameter of Ceres is what fraction of the Moon's diameter?

2. List these celestial bodies in order from smallest to largest : (Haumea, Eris, The Moon, Ceres, Makemake)

3. List these celestial bodies in order from closest to farthest : (The Moon lol, Eris, Pluto, Makemake, Haumea, 2007 OR10, Voyager 2)


4. Get your cheat sheet out boys,
Label all parts of the moon with the #'s corresponding to the letters.

Image

1. Mare Nectaris
2. Mare Crisium
3. Tycho Crater
4. Mare Tranquilitatis
5. Mare Fecunditatis
6. Grimaldi Crater
7. Mare Serenitatis
8. Mare Vaporum
9. Copernicus Crater
10. Mare Nubium
11. Mare Humorum
12. Oceanus Procellarum
13. Mare Imbrium
14. Mare Frigoris
15. Mare Insularum

HOW TO ANSWER : For example, lets say "B" was the Copernicus Crater (it isn't btw) you would put this : 9. B


Sorry for late response, hope this can make up for it..
