Why am I wrong to say, "the earth is far from the sun and the moon"? 'Far' is even given in the floating hints.

It is just that 'a long way from' is the more usual English expression in this context.

So it's not that 'far' is the wrong answer, it's just that 'a long way from' is a better answer? OK, I can live with that.
