Saturns atmosphere is less varied in coloration and appearance than that of Jupiter because of which of the following reasons?

    Most of the water vapor in the upper atmosphere is in gaseous form and thus blocks the colors.
     The wind speeds on Saturn are lower, creating fewer storms and less colorful features.
     Most of the incident light on Saturn is absorbed by hydrogen, blocking the stronger colors.
     Saturn is larger than Jupiter and therefore has less violent storms.
     Saturns top clouds are thicker, with few holes and gaps, obscuring the deeper layers..
