  1. Coastal plains are also known as: Lowlands Plateaus

  2. Coastal plains are commonly referred to as (a.) Lowlands.

  3. An example of a raised, relatively flat area is/are the: Grand Tetons Colorado plateau Appalachians

  4. The (b.) Colorado plateau is an example of a raised, relatively flat area of land.

  5. Which is not a major mountain type? Fault-block b. Upwarped c. Transform d. Folded

  6. (c.) Transform is a term that best describes a fault, not a mountain.

  7. The 3 major types of landforms are: Plateaus, mountains and basins. Volcanoes, mountains and plains. Volcanoes, plains and plateaus. Plains, plateaus and mountains.

  8. (d.)Plains, plateaus and mountains are the three major types of landforms.

  9. The Appalachian Mountains formed when rock layers were squeezed together on opposite sides. Based on this information, what type of mountain is found in the Appalachian Range?

  10. Folded mountains are characterized by rock layers being squeezed together on opposite sides.

  11. The difference between mechanical and chemical weathering is: a. The length of time each takes to break up a rock. b. The way each affects the composition of the rock.

  12. The difference between mechanical and chemical weathering is (b.)theway each affects the composition ofthe rock.

  13. Which of the following does not cause mechanical weathering? a. Water b. Carbonic Acid c. Tree roots

  14. (b.) Carbonic Acid would be a cause of chemical weathering—NOT mechanical weathering.

  15. Mechanical weathering: a. breaks apart rocks without changing their chemical composition. b. occurs when water, air and other substances react with the minerals in rock. c. involves a change in the rock’s composition. d. None of the above.

  16. Mechanical weathering (a.)breaks apart rocks without changing their chemical composition.

  17. The process of erosion and deposition can be explained as: a. weathering and dropping of materials. b. breaking and movement of rock. c. movement and dropping of rock fragments. d. wearing away, movement and dropping of materials.

  18. The process of erosion and deposition can be explained as(d.)wearing away, movement and dropping of materials.

  19. This occurs when water, air, naturally formed acids and other substances react with the minerals in rocks.

  20. Chemical weathering occurs when water, air, naturally formed acids and other substances react with the minerals in rocks.

  21. The layer of the atmosphere closest to the Earth’s surface is the: Troposphere Ionosphere

  22. The atmospheric layer nearest the Earth’s surface is the(a.) Troposphere

  23. Which of the following contains the highest concentration of ozone? a. Exosphere b. Stratosphere c. Electrosphere

  24. The (b.) Stratosphere contains the highest concentration of ozone.

  25. Which is the outermost layer of the Earth’s surface? a. The mantle b. The outer core c. The crust d. None of the above

  26. The (c.) crust is the outermost layer of the Earth’s surface.

  27. As you go higher in the troposhere, the temperature: a. Increases b. Decreases c. Remains constant d. Cannot be measured

  28. The temperature (b.) decreases as you go higher in the troposphere.

  29. (This) is the largest layer of the Earth’s interior and is composed of silicon, oxygen, magnesium and iron.

  30. The mantle is the largest layer of the Earth’s interior and is composed of silicon, oxygen, magnesium and iron.

  31. When the force of rocks is great enough, they break, producing vibrations called: a. Earthquakes b. Stress fractures

  32. When the force of rocks is great enough, they break, producing vibrations called(a.) earthquakes.

  33. The point in Earth’s interior where the energy release of an earthquake occurs is known as the: a. Fault b. Hot spot c. Focus

  34. The point in the Earth’s interior where the energy release of an earthquake occurs is known as the (c.) focus.

  35. The idea that continents have moved horizontally to their current locations is called: a. Convection b. Continental slope c. Continental drift d. Magnetism

  36. The idea that continents have moved horizontally to their current locations, is known as (c.) continental drift.

  37. The presence of (what) on several continents supports the idea of continental drift? a. The same fossils b. The same rocks c. Both a. and b. d. None of the above

  38. The presence of the same(c.) fossils AND rocks provides support for the idea of continental drift.

  39. The boundary between two colliding plates is called (what)?

  40. The boundary between two colliding plates is called convergence, or a convergent boundary.

  41. A violent, whirling wind that moves over a narrow path on land is a: Hurricane Tornado

  42. A violent, whirling wind that moves over a narrow path on land is a (b.) tornado.

  43. (This) is a major influence on climate. Moonlight Large bodies of water Solar wind

  44. (b.) Large bodies of water are a major influence on climate.

  45. Which of the following is most likely to be produced by a severe thunderstorm? Hurricane Weather front Tornado Air mass

  46. A (c.) tornado is most likely to be produced by a severe thunderstorm.

  47. ‘Climate’ differs from ‘weather’ in that climate: Changes less rapidly. Changes more rapidly. Is more extreme. Is more dangerous at high altitude.

  48. ‘Climate’ differs from ‘weather’ in that climate (a.) changes less rapidlythan weather.

  49. Weather statistics averaged over a long period of time characterizes (what)?

  50. Weather statistics averaged over a long period of time characterizes climate.
