No, in fact it is the second-largest galaxy, after M31. Most of the other members of the Local Group are dwarf galaxies.
It is the largest galaxy in our local group, but there are larger galaxies elsewhere in the universe.
Mars is not a galaxy! It is a planet in our solar system.

No. The Milky Way is one of the larger galaxies.
The two most massive members of the local group are the Milky Way (Our Galaxy) and the Andromeda Galaxy. The Andromeda Galaxy is the largest but it may not be the most massive, as recent findings suggest that the Milky Way contains more dark matter and may be the most massive in the local group.
Our local galaxy group is known as the Local Group.
The two most massive members of the Local Group are the Milky Way and Andromeda Galaxy.
No, The Local Group is not. The local group is just an small cluster of a few galaxies on the outskirts of the Local Super-cluster which the Virgo cluster is in the center of it.
The ONLY galaxy in the "local milky way" is the Milky Way itself. If you're asking what the largest galaxy in the local group is, the Andromeda Galaxy is the largest by size but the Milky Way may be slightly larger by mass. It's definitely one of those two by any reasonable criterion, though.
No. The Milky Way is one of the three large galaxies - out of a total of perhaps 20 or 30 galaxies in the Local Group.
A group of galaxies is called a galaxy cluster. Our local galaxy cluster, which includes our galaxy, the Milky Way, is known as the Local Group.
it's the second largest galaxy in the local group and our solar system is in the Orion arm of the milky way.
The largest Galaxy ever discovered was IC1101, an Elliptical Galaxy, but the most common large ones are Spirals such as the biggest Galaxies in the Local Group, Andromeda, Milky Way, and Triangulum; all Spirals.
The local group is a collection of galaxies. It is not a galaxy on it's own.
Our Galaxy, the Milky Way, is part of the local group of Galaxies
Andromeda Galaxy is the nearest spiral galaxy to our Milky Way Galaxy. It is the largest galaxy of the Local Group, which also contains the Milky Way, the Triangulum Galaxy, and about 30 other smaller galaxies.
The Milky Way is in the 'Local Group', which is a part of 'Local Supercluster'
Yes the local cluster is larger than a galaxy
If I understood the question correctly, our galaxy, the Milky Way, is part of the Local Group.
In Astronomy, "Local Group" refers to the galaxy group that includes our own galaxy (the Milky Way). It includes three larger galaxies (Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy and the Triangulum Galaxy) and several dozen dwarf galaxies.
There are thought to be somewhere around 200-400 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy, which is a fairly large galaxy (the second largest, and possibly most massive, galaxy in the Local Group of around 50 galaxies).
Universe-milkyway-galaxy(*)-solar systemIt could also be Universe-galaxy(*)-milkyway-solar system(*) It depends on the size of the galaxy. The milkyway is large gallaxy (estimated around 200 billion stars) but there are larger galaxies in the universe. In our local group of galaxies, however, the milkyway is pretty large and most are smaller.
no one nows we might live a group of galaxy or we might not who nows?
