2) EARTH AND SPACE Short Answer What type of galaxy is the Milky Way?

ANSWER: SPIRAL (ACCEPT: BARRED SPIRAL)

I don't understand this at all. Please explain. For the Milky Way, I know it is not the chocolate thing, then what is it.

according to seasky.org, "Spiral galaxies are characterized by a distinct flattened spiral disk with a bright center called the nucleus. Our own Milky Way is a spiral galaxy." 
It seems that the Milky Way has distinct flattened spiral disk with bright centers. A spiral galaxy is a type of galaxy, and the milky way is the galaxy that contains the solar system.

Hope this helped

  If you can find very dark skies with no moon, you can see an ARM of the spiral Milky Way stretching from north to south across the sky....looks kinda like a thin high sirrus cloud....here is a couple of pics from last Summer: (one even has a faint meteor streaking across it)
