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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Geoid is the shape of the earth.
