  • Question 1
    30 seconds
    Q.

    A geologist is studying an area where earthquakes are likely to occur. What might the geologist expect to see after an earthquake?

    answer choices

    The streams’ directions have changed after the formation of a hot spot in Earth’s crust.

    The direction of the water flow in the streams has changed as a result of a change in the slope.

    The streams on one side of the fault have shifted in relation to the streams on the other side of the fault.

    Additional streams have formed on both sides of the fault as a result of new faults forming in Earth’s crust.

  • Question 7
    30 seconds
    Q.

    Early in the history of geology, scientists debated different views of how geologic processes worked. Which statement explains how scientists generally view geologic changes or processes today?

    answer choices

    Earth’s surface is reshaped only through slow, gradual geologic processes.

    Early in Earth’s history, most geologic change was sudden, but now it’s mostly slow.

    Some geologic processes happen quickly, while others happen over millions of years.

    Geologic changes that reshape Earth’s surface only occur in sudden, devastating events.
