In each case, the mass of the planet is given in Jupiter masses and the orbital distance is given in Astronomical Units (AU). Rank each case based on the strength of the gravitational force exertedby the extrasolar planet on its central star, from weakest to strongest. If you think that two (or more) diagrams should be ranked as equal, drag one on top of the other(s) to show this equality. (Not to scale)
