View Answer
Due to the vast cloud of Carbon Dioxide.
As compared to the distance between Mercury and the sun, the distance between Venus and the Sun is twice. Despite this much distance, Venus is hotter than Mercury. The reason is that Venus has a massive cloud of Carbon dioxide in its surrounding trapping sun rays. This phenomenon gives rise to its temperature.
