The answer for Question 18 is incorrect because neither Shapley or Curtis were fully correct as Edwin Hubble proved their theories both wrong.

Curtis was the one who said the universe was made up of lots of different galaxies each containing billions of stars, so he was technically correct about the number of galaxies, although there was never a proper number.
