I think your teacher needs to update his/her question book.
Both Jupiter and Saturn have more than 30 moons and have rings made of ice.
However, Saturn is the answer they are looking for.
Saturn has rings of ice and rocks and at least 18 moons
Inner planet - closer to the Sun, made of rock and metals, no rings and few moons Outer planet - farther from the Sun, made of gas, has rings and many moons.
The rings are mainly made of from dust, ice or rubble from that planet.Most moons are asteroids or bits of the planet that have broken off of the planet caught in the gravitational pull from the planet.
As of June 2014, 14 moons have been found orbiting Neptune. The planet also has thin, unstable rings that are made if dust.
the rings of Saturn are made up of things like rocks, ice, dust, broken up failed moons. actually technically the rings of Saturn are many moons orbiting the planet
Several moons, and rings. The rings are made up of billions of tiny particles.Several moons, and rings. The rings are made up of billions of tiny particles.Several moons, and rings.

The rings of a planet cannot be counted, since they are not solid but made of millions of tiny particles. However, moons can be counted: Mercury - 0 Venus - 0 Earth - 1 Mars - 2 Jupiter - 63 (has rings) Saturn - 60 (has rings) Uranus - 27 (has rings) Neptune - 13 (has rings)
Saturn is the planet that has at least 100 rings. Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune also have rings. The rings are made up of debris that is caught in the planet's gravitational pull.
Planet Saturn has 62 known moons of which 53 are named. Of course, the famous rings are made up of debris of former satellites or moons.
the rings of neptunes 13 moons are made of iron
Saturn is the planet with rings made of ice and rock.
It can be natural satellites (moons), man-made satellites or small pieces of matter such as ice (rings of the outer planets).
Venus does not have rings.
Many things actually orbit the planet of Uranus. 13 rings made up of large, rocky matter orbit the gas giant. Also, 15 moons orbit this distant planet. It is highly possible that more rings and moons are orbiting Uranus that we just haven't detected yet.
There are blocks of ice there too! (maybe from comets that have been captured) The rings are probably debris from impacts between asteroids and the moons of Saturn with the possibility that some moons have been entirely torn apart by impacts or gravitational pull from the mother planet and other moons.
Saturn's rings are made up of dust and rock in space. Each and every fragment is in a gravitational orbit of the planet, so in a sense, one might say that Saturn has billions of 'moons'.
Saturn actually has 62 moons. Not to mention that, although it looks solid, the rings are actually made of space dust and debri that are slowly moving away from the planet.
Saturn's rings are made up of dust, rocks , asteroids, and moons.
Jupiter's rings are made of fine dust particles which are the debris of meteoroids that have crashed into the planets moons.
Saturn's rings are made of ice chunks of various sizes surrounded by Saturn's 60 moons and moonlets
The rings are made up of small debree and therefor are on a tight close orbit around the planet. The large moons are the opposite because they are large and therefor on a much further out orbit. The sun has a gravitational pull on all things in our solar system and its pull is much larger on the moon and it keeps it further away from the sun.
The inner planets are Rocky Terrestrial. The outer planets are Gaseous.None of the inner planets have rings. All outer planets have rings.NOTES:Jupiter - Largest planet ( spins quickly on its axis ). Has a red spot which is a huge storm that is 3x the size of Earth. Has 63 moons.Saturn - 2nd biggest planet. Lightest planet ( if enough water saturn could float in it ). Beautiful rings ( saturns rings are made of moons that were smashed because of saturns gravity. Has 62 moons.Uranus - Axis is at 97 degrees. Which it means it is rotating on its side. Has 24 moons.Neptune - One Neptune year lasts 165 Earth years!Like Jupiter, Neptune has a dark spot caused by a storm. Neptune's spot is smaller than Jupiter's -- it is only about the size of the planet earth. Has 13 moons.
it has rings made out of rock and ice and it uses the rings to protect it self
Are you kidding? Jupiter: Gas giant, rings, made up of hydrogen, 20+ moons, REALLY HUGE. Pluto: Dwarf planet, 3 moons, made up of ice, SIZE OF MANHATTAN. Go look at Offended, you deserve it.
The inner: small, few moons, made of rock and metal the outer: large, lots of moons, made of gases
