  • Q14

    Which of the choices is a disadvantage of using Mohs' Scale of Hardness?

    The test is easy.

    The Scale is qualitative, not quantitative.

    The test can be done anywhere, anytime, as long as there is sufficient light to see scratches.

    The test is convenient for field geologists with scratch kits who want to make a rough identification of minerals outside the lab.
