Flabbergasted, you are quite
close indeed. I don't know what Simon considers 'correct' here aside from an actual diagram of his model but the Great Cycle will be a big part of it. You may just have to scale a few orbits — with one result in particular — to give us another key characteristic of the new SSSS! But no more "spoilers" ... right?!

Dear Hoi: no, nothing in my old SSSS thread suggests any sort of answer to this present quiz.
, dear Simon! You've been focused on an "alternative" movement for Earth since the beginning! That's all I meant by a hint. But perhaps I can be considered a 'cheater' for having something very close to your present
model explained to me by your very self so even temporary 'solutions' from the original SSSS thread seem very evocative to me of a 'suggestion' about how to approach the problem of "star movement" in the history
of your models, such as this now obsolete idea:
... it's just that it has evolved into something more complex and yet simpler at the same time. And you have even kept the interesting and solid principles of circles, orbits around so-called "empty space" and many other timeless 'problems' that finally make sense with your elegant solutions.
Although I am not the host of your game, HonestlyNow was close for bringing up "heliocentrism", since it's related in at least one kind of "Louis Caroll"-like logic: both the pop quiz picture and the concept of "heliocentrism" evade the center of Earth's orbit!
It has been very fun and interesting to witness your model evolving, and — as you said — getting tested by various questions. I am confident that what you have now
is more cohesive than what children subjected to NASA-riddled text books are getting from their local "knowledge authorities". I think you may even change text books yourself!
Though, knowing the perps, they will find someone to swoop in and claim they've been working on the problem for a long time and unveil it through a NASA quirk like a "new observation from the ISS" or "orbit calculating satellite" or some other goofy palaver. Anything to avoid shaking the confidence of the follower-type people in the shadow-puppetmaster hoaxy old technofascist science priesthood.
