    .edu : Domain Name used for Educational Website.
    .gov : Domain Name used for Government Website.
    .net : Domain Name used for Administrative Website.
    .org : Domain Name used for Organizational Website.

    Very Sure

    .edu & .gov are highly trusted Websites and they get natural links. Natural links values a more then any normal link. Thus these Websites have high Google PageRank.

    I hope now its clear

    All domain extentions are best for SEO, if you have gained backlinks from good high quality websites then it is more valuable for SEO.

    Does it affect much? But just like what pramod mentioned, it depends on your website/business nature.

    .com is still the most popular domain but you may consider to secure other extension too before others take it.
