Why Do the Planets of Our Solar System Revolve around the Sun?

Answer

The fundamental reason why the planets in our solar system revolve around the sun is that the gravity of the sun keeps them in their orbits. In a similar way that the moon orbits the Earth as a consequence of the pull of Earth's gravity, the Earth orbits the sun as a result of the pull of the sun's gravity.
