The Earth is the third planet in the Solar System "Third rock from the Sun"
Ranked by what property? By abundance of life, it's number 1 by infinity percent, with everything else tied for second with 0 (as far as we know). By mass, it's 5th among the …planets, 6th if you include the sun also. By volume gives the same result as by mass. By density, it's actually number 1 again.

Mars is the 3rd planet and mars is the 4th planet from the sun
No, the word solar system itself say that the solar or Sun is the centre of the system.

it is the third planet from the sun that has one moon.
In the astrophysical sense alone, Earth could be argued not to beimportant to the solar system and that it is more the logicalconverse - the solar system is important to Earth…, particularly thepresence of a star to provide energy and a favorable distance fromthe Sun such that most water is in liquid state so that life canflourish here. Also, the giant outer planets act as an importantshield to Earth, deflecting or absorbing inbound objects that mightpose a risk of impact damage to our fragile ecosystem. The influence of Earth on remainder of the solar system is rathertrivial - it might provide a minor perterbation of orbits of otherplanets but not significant. Some astronomers have pointed out thatthe solar wind can catch spores, bacteria, viruses in the upperatmosphere and push it in a kind of spiral shape outwards along theplane of the ecliptic to occasionally land on other planets;however there is no documented evidence that such life has ever"taken root" on another body.

The sun is the center of our solar system. The earth and all other planets revolve around the sun.
Well, when we first left Mars in 1846 to transition to our new life on Earth, we created the best known creation to all of mankind, Reddit.com. This extension of our love for …narwhals who bacon at midnight shows our true dedication to squeezing our little life sized Solar System into the third universe of the Terran race. This whole event of fitting the only solar system in all of the cosmos began when we first held of the nasty Zerg from the planet Char. Through our mighty expedition through the stargates, we ended up meeting Doctor Who along the way with her sidekick who got drunk at a party, ended up taking nude pictures of herself, get her on the news, arrested, and then put back onto the show with a raise to her salary although the series ended. This... this is our brave story of how we fit our Solar System into the universe we call 'The Milky Way Bar.'

In The Moon
The natural satellite called Luna or Moon orbits the Earth, a planet in the Solar (Sol is the name of our star) system. The 8 planets with their moons, and planetesimals and …asteroids and comets in the Solar system orbit the Sun. The Sun is just a regular old star out near the edge of our spiral galaxy, the Milky Way. There are billions of other stars and many black holes in the galaxy, too. The Milky Way is part of a local cluster with several much smaller galaxies that seem to be attaching themselves to the Milky Way. The Milky Way is just an average spiral galaxy, one of billions upon billions of different shaped galaxies that all seem to be moving away from each other within our Universe. The Universe is most likely part of a larger multiverse, or multiple universes.
Earth is the 3rd planet from the Sun, between the 2nd and 4thplanets, Venus, and Mars, respectively.
When we refer to the solar system we mean our sun and the bodiesthat are gravitationally bound to it. There are eight planets atvarying distances from the sun. In order of inc…reasing distancethey are; Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, andNeptune. Most have moons. In addition to these there are several minor planets, countlessasteroids and occasional comets which may or may not remain a partof the solar system. Earth is the third planet from the sun and, so far, the only placewe know of where life exists.
