The star might be closer to the Earth, or it is just brighter than the others. :D
I wouldn't consider a star that is in the top 10 percentile (less than 10% of the other stars are brighter or bigger than our Sun) a "dwarf".
yes a white dwarf is like the mash potatoes and the sun is the the chicken ...The person who wrote this was not only mentally disturbed but also wrong on all accounts: firstly, metaphorically they screwed up. Secondly the actual answer is that a White Dwarf Star is brighter than our "Sun" of which is an ordinary Star, formed from the Stellar Nebula. A White Dwarf Star is denser than a regular star and contains a brighter form of white light.
Observed from Earth there are no brighter stars at the night sky. If you see something that is brighter, it will be a planet.
A white dwarf might be hotter, but a red giant is much, much bigger so it has a larger surface to radiate more radiation. So It will appear much brighter than a white dwarf.
No. There is no such thing as an "earth-like star" as Earth is a planet, not a star. Sirius A is a star that is larger and brighter than the sun.
A star that is brighter than another.
A cooler star could actually appear brighter than a hotter star because in is not just about the temperature is also depends which one is closer or further away from Earth. Therefore if a cooler star was closer to Earth than a hotter star then the cooler one would appear brighter.
The apparent magnitude of a star is a measure of its brightness as seen from Earth, the lower the number, the brighter a star is. Ex. a star that has an apparent magnitude of -20 is WAY brighter from Earth than a star with a apparent magnitude of 20.

No. A white dwarf is much smaller than a main sequence star. Some are about the same size as Earth.
It is the closest star to the Earth.
YES. A typical white dwarf star is only a bit bigger than the Earth.
No. As seen from Earth the "evening star," which is actually the planet Venus, is the second brightest object in the night sky. Only the moon is brighter.
A supergiant is much larger than a white dwarf. A supergiant can be 10 to 70 times the size of our Sun, whereas a white dwarf is only about the size of the Earth.
Generally, they are not much bigger than the Earth.
Stars vary widely in size and brightness. A nearby white dwarf star may produce much less light than a much more distant blue giant, in the same manner that a far off floodlight may outshine a close-by candle.
It is R136a1 and has an absolute magnitude 10 million times brighter than our sun
Because they are closer or actually brighter.
No. A magnitude 1 star is 100 times brighter than a magnitude 6 star. A star that is one magnitude brighter than another on this scale works out to be around 2.5 times brighter.
Because it actuall IS brighter.
Yes, far smaller. A red dwarf is a whole star in and of itself. A white dwarf is the collapsed remnant of the core of a low-to medium mass star. A white dwarf may be about the size of Earth.
No. Red dwarfs are M-type main sequence stars. The sun is A G-type main sequence star, also called a yellow dwarf, larger and much brighter than a red dwarf.
becuase he needs his catarax doneAnother AnswerThe brighter star may be farther away or obscured by space-borne dust.
