Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to
each of the questions.
CONTINENTAL DRIFT THEORY
The theory of continental drift relates to the Earth’s continents and their relative movement in
association with each other. It supports that the Earth’s continents were once joined as one
large landmass which split into the continents we recognize today. It also puts forth that the
Earth’s crust is constantly moving, both vertically and horizontally, and its movements in
relation to each other are responsible for continental drift. The theory that explains these
movements is called “plate tectonics”.
This theory was initially discredited as faulty by most scientists after Alfred Wegner formally
published his hypothesis on continental drift in 1915. It was not until the 1950’s that his theory
was revived and further research into continental drift began. Today, most geophysicists
accept the continental drift theory, along with the theory of plate tectonics.
Evidence for the continental drift theory is supposed by several factors. For one, large
landmasses seem to “fit together” like a huge puzzle. More evidence that continents were at
one time linked together comes from identical fossil remains of plants and animals found on
opposing continental sea shores. Also, several temperate climate fossilized faunas have been
discovered in Antarctica indicating the possibility that this continent was at one time closer to
equator, whereas the lack of such findings would have possibly dissuaded scientists from
further study into continental drift.


One of the major reasons why Wegner’s original theory did not receive acceptance in his
lifetime was his failure to explain the type of forces that could move such large masses of land.
Initially, he hypothesized that tidal forces caused the land masses to drift. However, scientists
at the time noted that tidal forces strong enough to move continents would stop Earth’s
rotation within one year.
The final acceptance of part of Wegner’s theory in the mid-20th century was direct result of
further evidence of drift found on the ocean floor. Eventually, this new evidence led to the
theory of plate tectonics. The idea that massive plates lay under the Earth’ s crust, and that
these plates are in a constant state of movement because they exist directly above a superhot,
liquid form of Earth, is widely accepted by the scientific community today.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to
each of the questions.
EARTHQUAKE
Earthquakes occur as a result of sudden shifts in the Earth’s tectonic plates.
Sometimes they are characterized by a sudden violent shaking of the ground. Depending on
the amount of energy released in an earthquake, the geographic location of an earthquake’s
initial ground rupture, and the population density in the area surrounding this ground rupture,
earthquakes can have severeconsequences to human life.
Scientists use the Richter scale to measure the force or power of an earthquake. Developed by
Charles F. Richter in 1935 inconjunction with the California Institute of Technology, the scale is
used to record earthquakes from less than a 2.0, micro-earthquakes, all the way up to more
than a 10.0 known as “rocky meteorite impacting,” the likes of which have never been
recorded.
Micro-earthquakes measuring 2.0 or less on the Richer scale occur at a rate of about 8,000 per
day. These are never felt and are considered harmless. Minor earthquakes lay between 3.0-3.9
on the Richter scale. They are often felt, but seldom result in any damage. It is estimated that
there are round 49,000 minor earthquakes per year. Measuring in at 6.0-6.9 on the Richter scale,
a strong earthquake can devastate areas within a 100 mile radius of the initial ground rupture


point as witnessed in several earthquake-prone zones throughout the world. Strong
earthquakes occur at a frequency of about 120 per year. A great earthquake can be extremely
destructive in areas several hundred miles across. Great earthquakes measure in at 8.0-8.9 on
the Richter scale. Earth averages on great earthquake per year.
Scientists have estimated that the 1906 San Francisco earthquake could have measured
between 8.0 and 8.9 on the Richter scale. This earthquake ruptured 296 miles off the San
Andreas Fault. Important scientific research of the great San Francisco earthquake spawned
new theories about the source of earthquakes. For example, the elastic –rebound theory
developed by Reid in 1910 after carefully researching the displacement and strains in the crust
surrounding the rupture. This theory is still the basis for studying the earthquake cycle.
