The aspect of the gas giants that has the biggest effect on
their rings and satellites is their gravity.
Why are temperatures on the gas giants so low
They are far from the sun.
The sun produces energy from matter in its core through the process of
Which planet do most known extrasolar planets most resemble
The planet that most extrasolar planets resembles Jupiter.
Most of the confirmed Exoplanets are larger gaseous planets with large masses. These are easier to detect and confirm due to their size. They most resemble Jupiter, although many are thought to be much larger than our largest planet.

its larger then the planet mercury
What aspect of gas giants is most responsible for their low temperature
Their distance from the sun
What is true about the satellite titan
That it is Saturn's biggest moon and it has an atmosphere.
Gas giants have many more moons than terrestrial planets due to have higher
Gas giants have a higher mass.
This means that the gas giants have a more gravity to hold moons
in orbit around them.
