Does the Moon Reflect Light from the Sun?

Answer

The moon reflects light from the sun. We can see the Moon for the reason that light from the Sun bounces it off back to the Earth. The Sun always lights up (illuminates) one side of the Moon and it appears to change shape but what we are actually seeing is the Moon lit up by the light from the Sun in different ways on different days.
