  • Question 7
    30 seconds
    Q.

    The diagram below shows the sequence of the processes that turn solid rock into sandstone. Which two processes best complete this diagram?

    answer choices

    Melting and cooling

    Erosion and compaction

    Compaction and cementation

    Evaporation and dissolving

  • Question 8
    30 seconds
    Q.

    Which of the following correctly completes the Sedimentary Rock Cycle?

    answer choices

    A = Compaction, B = Erosion, C = Cementation

    A = Erosion, B = Compaction, C = Cementation

    A = Cementation, B = Compaction, C = Erosion

    A = Erosion, B = Cementation, C = Compaction
