  • Question 1
    120 seconds
    Q. The boundary between the Pacific Plate and the Australian Plate is a transform boundary.  What event is likely to occur at this boundary?
    answer choices
    Mountain formation
    Earthquakes
    Hurricanes
    Volcanic eruptions
  • Question 2
    120 seconds
    Q. The San Andreas Fault in California is a result of movement between the Pacific and the N. American plates. Name of this plate movement is _______?
    answer choices
    Convergent
    Divergent
    Transform
    Subduction
  • Question 3
    120 seconds
    Q. What is subduction?
    answer choices
    It's when plates collide and form mountains.
    It's when plates pull apart and make new crust.
    It's when plates slide past each other, destroying the crust.
    It's when plates collide and the denser sinks below the less dense plate.
  • Question 4
    120 seconds
    Q. Which layer is broken into pieces called plates?
    answer choices
    Asthenosphere
    Crust
    Lithosphere
    Mantle
  • Question 5
    120 seconds
    Q. Which layer is "squishy" allowing the plates to float on top of it?
    answer choices
    mantle
    Atmosphere
    Lithosphere
    Mesosphere
  • Question 6
    120 seconds
    Q. What causes the plates to move?
    answer choices
    Ocean Tides
    Earthquakes
    Subduction of plates converging
    Convection currents within the mantle
  • Question 7
    120 seconds
    Q. Where do most geological events happen?
    answer choices
    In the Pacific Ocean
    On larger continents
    Along the plate boundaries
    At the North and South Poles
  • Question 8
    120 seconds

  • Question 9
    120 seconds
    Q. Where tectonic plates pull away from each other, which of the following geologic land forms is most likely to form?
    answer choices
    Ridge
    Plateau
    Mountain

  • Question 10
    120 seconds
    Q. What land form will most likely occur at a divergent plate boundary?
    answer choices
    The plates will form a mountain chain 
    One plate will subduct under the other 
    The plates will create a mid ocean ridge 
    A fault line will form, and earthquakes will result
  • Question 11
    120 seconds
    Q. When an oceanic plate converges with a continental plate, which geological event will occur?
    answer choices
    A rift valley
    A plateau
