Could you answer this question

Silly post time.  Could you answer this question correctly, seen this morning on the children’s program, “50/50” (10:00, BBC 2)

Which planet in the solar system is furthest from the Sun

This was a multiple-choice question, with the possible answers being:

a) Pluto

b) Saturn
