Dear Sir/Madam,

In our classroom we have been studying space.  In a book we stumbled 
across the fact that Mercury is smaller than Pluto, however in another 
source we read that Pluto was the smallest planet. Can you tell us 
which fact is correct.

Yours sincerely,
Zeb McCarthy, grade 6, Woodford Primary School, Australia.
