The Earth's lithosphere is composed of seven or eight major plates and many minor plates.

Test: Our Changing Earth - Question 2

The molten magma inside the earth moves in a

Detailed Solution for Test: Our Changing Earth - Question 2

The lithosphere is broken into a number of plates known as the lithospheric plates. These plates move around very slowly because of the movement of the molten magma inside the earth which moves in a circular manner.

Test: Our Changing Earth - Question 3

The earth movements are divided on the basis of the _______ which cause them to move.

Detailed Solution for Test: Our Changing Earth - Question 3

The earth's movements are divided on the basis of the forces which cause them to move.

Test: Our Changing Earth - Question 4

Two types of forces are

Detailed Solution for Test: Our Changing Earth - Question 4
  • The forces which act in the interior of the earth are called Endogenic forces.
  • The forces that work on the surface of the earth are called Exogenic forces.
Test: Our Changing Earth - Question 5

The forces which act in the interior of the earth are called as:

Detailed Solution for Test: Our Changing Earth - Question 5

Endogenic forces are those forces that act in the interior of the earth.
Example: volcanoes and earthquakes causing mass destruction over the surface of the earth.

Test: Our Changing Earth - Question 6

Which of the following is NOT exogenic force?

Detailed Solution for Test: Our Changing Earth - Question 6
  • Exogenic (a.k.a. exogenetic) refers to external processes and phenomena that occur on or above the surface of the earth.
    Example: Comet and meteoroid impacts, the tidal force of the moon, and the radiation from the sun, Weathering effects, and erosion.
  • Running water, wind, snow and waves are agents in exogenous processes, and these agents are also known as “Geomorphic agents”.
  • ​Whereas, sudden movements such as volcanos are caused by endogenous force.

Thus, option A is correct.

Detailed Solution for Test: Our Changing Earth - Question 9

The place in the crust where the movement starts is called the focus. The place on the surface above the focus is called the epicenter. Vibrations travel outwards from the epicenter as waves. The greatest damage is usually closest to the epicenter and the strength of the earthquake decreases away from the center.

Test: Our Changing Earth - Question 10

When the Lithospheric plates move, the surface of the earth vibrates. The vibrations can travel all round the earth. These vibrations are called

Detailed Solution for Test: Our Changing Earth - Question 10

When the Lithospheric plates move, the surface of the earth vibrates. The vibrations can travel all round the earth. These vibrations are called earthquakes.
