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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
