Question 1 1 pts The rigid, non-convecting outer layer of Earth is known as the: lithosphere
stratosphere Question 2 1 pts The "plate" in plate tectonics is: the Earth's crust
the Earth's upper mantle
the continental crust
the lithosphere (crust and the uppermost mantle)
the continental lithosphere (continental crust and the uppermost mantle) Question 3
Which of the following Earth layers is not solid? 1 pts crust
asthenosphere Question 4 1 pts Which of the following responses best summarizes the relationship between volcanoes,
large earthquakes, and tectonic plates?
Volcanoes are typically found on islands and earthquakes typically occur in continents. Both
volcanoes and large earthquakes occur near tectonic plates.
Volcanoes and large earthquakes both typically occur along the edges of tectonic plates.
Volcanoes mostly occur in the center of tectonic plates and large earthquakes typically occur
along the edges of tectonic plates.
Volcanoes and large earthquakes both typically occur in warm climates near tectonic plates.
Volcanoes, large earthquakes, and tectonic plates are not related, and each can occur in different
places. Question 5 10 pts True of False: It is impossible for two continents to meet at a convergent boundary. True
False Question 6 10 pts At ___________ boundaries, lithosphere is neither created nor consumed
transform plate boundary Question 7 10 pts True or False: Divergent margins are present only in the ocean basins. True
False Question 8 10 pts Put the following Earth layers in order from the center of the planet outwards. Center is 1,
outermost layer is 5. 1 Core 2 Lower Mantle 3 Asthenosphere 4 Uppermost Mantle 5 Oceanic Crust Question 9 10 pts When comparing the thickness of the crust to the remainder of the planet, it could be
described as akin to: The skin of an orange
The skin of an apple
The rind of a watermelon
The black cookies of an Oreo
The shell of a walnut Question 10 10 pts Check off the statements regarding the lithosphere that are true The lithosphere forms a continuous layer across the surface of the Earth
Movement of the lithosphere only occurs in subduction zones The lithosphere includes parts of the mantle The lithosphere sits atop the asthenosphere
New lithosphere is generated at divergent margins Question 11 0 pts Were there any ideas from the readings and review questions that were challenging?
Please describe any questions you might have.
