What is larger in the sky: the Moon or the Sun? (By apparent size)

the Sun
the Moon
both are identical
sometimes the Moon, sometimes the Sun
The Moon's orbit is elliptical, and its apparent diameter varies by 10%. This is why both total eclipses (if the Moon is larger) and annular eclipses (if the Sun is larger) happen.
