Chapter 2 Investigation B In the Figure 1 schematic view of the ocean bottom, the vertical scale is given in kilometers (km). This vertical scale is vastly different from the horizontal scale. The vertical distance between scale markings is _____ km. A.1B.10C.100 Answer Key: B Question 2 of 15 (worth 1 point) The ocean trench in the schematic view has a maximum depth of _____ km below sea level. A. 8 B. 80 C. 800 Answer Key: Question 3 of 15 (worth 1 point) The distance between scale markings on the horizontal scale is 100km. Comparison of the vertical and horizontal scales indicates that the vertical scale is exaggerated _____ times relative to the horizontal scale. Answer Key: A Question 4 of 15 (worth 1 point) The right portion of Figure 1 describes general characteristics of the ocean bottom in coastal areas that are tectonically passive (not near a plate boundary). The left portion of the figure generalizes tectonically active regions, typically associated with convergent plate boundaries, experience relatively frequent earthquakes and/or volcanic activity.
