    Well Hubbles law only applies to distant galaxies is about right for a 1 mark question... you might additionally say something about gravitational binding I suppose.

    Sirius appears as a very bright naked eye star from Earth

    discovering Hubbles law required a leap in telescope technology (especially apeture size) in the early 20th century because it required collecting spectra from such distant objects. These galaxies aren't just a little bit further away than naked eye stuff.
