Please see below.


Trojans are mostly in two groups of asteroids that are in Jupiter’s orbit and their orbit is such that they stay in balanced gravitational firld between Sun and Jupiter.

Apollo and Amor are asteroids that are closer to earth. While orbit of Apollo asteroids crosses earth's orbit, orbit of Amor asteroids approaches earth but does not cross it.
