HELP ASAP PLEASE - Which best describes how the arrangement of the sun, moon, and the earth affect the range of the tides during a spring tide? A.

Because the earth, moon, and sun are in alignment, the pull of the moon and sun act in the same direction, causing the highest high tides and the lowest low tides. C. Because the earth, moon, and sun are all out of alignment, the pull of the moon and sun act in the opposite direction, causing the lowest high tides and the highest low tides. D.

B. When the sun and the moon are aligned, their combined gravitational force attracts the water, causing super high tides on one side of the planet, and super low tides on the opposite side.
