    Solution:

    Concept: we will use the fact that the moon would revolve around  Earth every month. Thus, in order to solve the question, we use the formula of circumference of the circle. This is given by 2πr.
    Here,
    radius=384000km
    So,
    length of path in circumference
    =2πr=2×3.14×384000
    =2×314×3840
    2411520 km.
    Hence, the correct answer is option (2) .
