Is hot air lighter or heavier than cold air?

Correct! Wrong!

Hot air is lighter than cold air. The reason for this is when air gets heated up it expands and becomes less dense than the air surrounding it also the distance between the molecules increases. So the less dense air floats in the much denser air just like ice floats on water as ice is less dense than water. A similar example of wood floating on water can also be taken in to account. Wood is solid and less dense hence, it floats on water.

Which star sign is represented by the twins?

Correct! Wrong!

Gemini is represented by the twins Castor and Pollux known as the Dioscuri. Their mother was Leda, but they had different fathers; Castor was the mortal son of Tyndareus, the king of Sparta, while Pollux was the divine son of Zeus, who seduced Leda in the guise of a swan. The pair are thus an example of heteropaternal superfecundation. Though accounts of their birth are varied, they are sometimes said to have been born from an egg, along with their twin sisters Helen of Troy and Clytemnestra.
