A black dwarf would be about the same size as a terrestrial planet such as Earth, so it would be larger than some planets but smaller than others.

Eris is the largest dwarf planet, about 25% larger than Pluto.

A black dwarf would be smaller than some planets but larger than others. A black dwarf is simply a cooled white dwarf. White dwarfs range from slightly smaller than Earth to about twice Earth's diameter.

yes, but sometimes dwarf planets can be smaller but most of the times they are larger

There is none. The dwarf planet Eris was once thought to be somewhat larger than Pluto. More accurate measurements show it is slightly smaller, but has more mass.

The definition of a dwarf planet is not based on size. The dwarf planets of the solar system are larger than most of the moons in the solar system, but still smaller than the largest of them. Pluto, the largest known dwarf planet is smaller than our moon.

NO......... Ganymede, a moon of Jupiter, is the largest in this solar system. At 5,268 km at the equator, it is larger than Mercury, the dwarf planet Pluto, and three times larger than the Moon orbiting Earth. Even it is 3 times larger than earth's moon it is still not big enough to oversize earth.

Bear in mind that Pluto has been reclassified as a dwarf planet. Venus ranks as planet #3, being larger than Mercury and Mars, but smaller than Earth.

It is smaller. Its size is one of the reasons why there was always a debate as to whether it was a planet at all, and why it eventually got downgraded to being a "dwarf planet".

Earth is larger than Mars, but Earth is not the largest planet.

Neither. It is considered a dwarf planet. It is much larger than a comet.

a dwarf planet is a planet that is smaller than usual, and it is called a dwarf planet because it is smaller than usual

As Pluto is no longer classed as a planet (It is now known as a dwarf planet), Mercury is the smallest. so there are seven planets larger than mercury.

Mars and Venus are both smaller than Earth but larger than Mercury

Both Venus and Mars are smaller than Earth but larger than Mercury.

Yes, Eris is the largest Plutoid (dwarf planet). It is further out than Pluto, but is larger than Pluto. There are also Haumea and Makemake. There are others as well, but so far these are the only ones named as being a dwarf planet/Plutoid.

YES. A typical white dwarf star is only a bit bigger than the Earth.
