I think earth is in the shape of sphere but here answer is oblate spheroid I didn't understand why? Please give the explanation

This is because when the earth rotates it gets bulge from north & south pole.

B is corect because earth is a sphere but at the poles it is exactly straight.

Geoid is the shape of the earth.

The question says: "The shape of the earth is...". I think SPHERE is the correct answer because we're not told the position. I believe that Earth is Spherical NATURALLY.

The diameter of earth at the equator is more than the diameter between the poles.

Earth's circumference and diameter differ because its shape is classified as an oblate spheroid or ellipsoid, instead of a true sphere.

But I have leaned that the earth is spherical so why that I can't understand well.

The earth's axis is not straight up and down but tilted at an angle 23.5 degrees. So the shape called oblate spheroid.

It's spherical as I have learnt. So explain your answer?

What about the statement " The Earth is spherical in shape"?

It's right. It is not clearly a sphere.
