This is because they are large planets that are mostly made of gas.
The solar system also includes the satellites of the planets; numerous comets, asteroids and meteoroids; and the interplanetary medium. The Sun makes up 98 percent of the matter in the solar system. Because of its weight, it has the most gravity. It pulls everything in the solar system toward it.
