1 Geology 101 001 Name (print) KEY v. B Fall 2007 TEST #1 (each question worth 1 pt; 70 pts total) Version: B I. Multiple Choice. Read each question carefully and pick the BEST answer. Clearly mark your SCANTRON to indicate your choice. 1. The rock cycle is driven by ______. 1) climate processes 2) tectonic processes 3) the earth’s internal heat 4) all of the above 5) none of the above 2. Primary names are assigned to igneous rocks based on ______. 1) the geographic location of discovery 2) texture and composition 3) the person who identified the rock 4) weathering reaction products 5) all of the above 3. Scientists have found striations (i.e., scratches) in rocks on southern continents that indicate glacial flow towards the center of the continents. Select the best explanation for this observation. 1) Glacial flow was reversed in the past; glaciers typically flowed inland because of inverse topographic patterns. 2) We now know the striations to be fossilized Cynognathus tracks. 3) The southern continents were once connected, with Antarctica as the core; glaciers moved from this central core towards the ocean. 4) The viscosity of glacial ice has changed over time; glacial flow patterns are therefore different from what we see today. 4. Which is NOT evidence of internal order within minerals? 1) constancy of interfacial angles 2) definable composition 3) well-formed crystal faces 4) perfect cleavage plane in one or more direction 5.
