The picture shows a fault in a place where mountains come down near the coast. What likely happened to form the ramp (also called a scarp) behind the person?A.Pull-apart forces pulled the rocks apart, making the break, and allowing one side to drop relative to the other.B.Push-together forces shoved one side up over the other, making the break.C.Slide-past forces shoved one side up over the other, makingthe break.D.Pull-apart forces shoved one side up over the other, making the break.E.Slide-past forces pulled the rocks apart, making the break, and allowing one side to drop relative to the other.The down-side dropped along the ramp compared to the up-side. (This is actually an interesting one; it formed in Alaska during the 1964 earthquake. That was a push-together quake, but it was so huge and moved so much rock in different directions that some ofthe rock ended up having pull-apart motions, such as this one.)Your Response:ARight Points Earned:1/113.The picture at left shows a section of fence straddling the San Andreas Fault.
