9.Refer to the diagram for Bowen's reaction series and select the correct statement.a. Olivine crystallizes at very low temperatures. Because of this it is the mostabundant mineral on Earth’s surface and makes up most of the sedimentary rocks.b. Olivine crystallizes at very high temperatures. It is almost always weathered fromigneous rocks at Earth's surface because it is not stable at low temperatures.c. Olivine is characterized as a felsic mineral.d. Olivine and quartz crystallize at the same temperatures, it just depends on howmuch iron is present in the melt.
10. The concept that Earth's surface is shaped by long, continuous processes, alsosummarized as "the present is the key to the past" is known as:
11. List twomineralsthat you could find in rocks at the Mid0ocean Ridge. Would this rockhave a mafic or felsic composition?Quiz 21.Soil is made of organic matter (humus), water, mineral matter, and ___________.
4. Determine which of the following statements about sedimentary rocks is FALSE.
5. Metamorphic rocks form as a result of the alteration of pre-existing rocks due to changesin temperature or pressure. Metamorphic rocks generally have the same composition (main5
