  • Question 1
    300 seconds
    Q.

    What is the Theory of Continental Drift?

    answer choices

    New continents are continually being created

    and destroyed.

    The layout of the continents is the same today

    as it has always been

    The continents have always been separate but

    may one day drift together to form a single

    continent

    All the continents were once one continent that

    broke up and drifted apart over hundreds of

    millions of years
