A reference frame attached to the Earth

## cannot be an inertial frame of reference because of

the Earth's rotation and revolution.

## is an inertial frame because Newton's laws of

motion are applicable inside it.

## is not an inertial frame because the Earth moves

with respect to the Sun.

## is an inertial frame by definition.
