##### Solution :-

According to universal law of gravitation and Newton third law, we all know that the force of attraction between 2 objects is same however in wrong way. So the planet attracts the moon with the identical force because the moon exerts on earth however in opposite directions. Since earth is far larger in size than moon, that the acceleration cannot be detected on earth surface.
