  • Q1

    Which does NOT describe the lithosphere?

    The lithosphere is made of the crust and the upper mantle.

    The lithosphere is made of molten rocks

    The lithosphere is divided into slabs called plates.

    Plates of the lithosphere are gradually moving.

    Cannot be determined

    Both continental and oceanic

  • Q4

    Which does NOT describe tectonic plates?

    Tectonic plates are slabs of the lithosphere that are gradually moving.

    The boundaries of tectonic plates are active.

    The central part of tectonic plates is the most active.

    Tectonic plates are slabs of the lithosphere.

  • Q5

    What shows that the plates are moving?

    Sudden shaking of the ground

    Distribution of active volcanoes, mountain belts, and earthquake epicenters

    Formation of thick and basaltic crust

    Occurrences of natural hazards

    S10ES –Ia-j-36.2
  • Q6

    Which natural hazard is a sudden and violent shaking of the ground, sometimes causing great destruction, because of movements within the earth’s crust or volcanic action?

  • Q7

    What is the BEST way to locate the epicenter of the earthquake?

    Measurement of intensity

    Venn diagram

    Triangulation method

  • Q8

    Which of these is NOT true about the Philippine Islands?

    Most are part of the Philippine Mobile Belt, except for Palawan, Mindoro, and Zamboanga.

    Some are formed because of the convergence of the Philippine Sea Plate and the Pacific Plate.

    Some originated geologically in an oceanic-oceanic convergence.

    Some are products of the subduction process.

  • Q9

    The Philippines is surrounded by trenches—the Philippine Trench, Manila Trench, Negros Trench, Sulu Trench, and the Cotabato Trench. What does this indicate in terms of the movement of the plates?

    The Philippines is surrounded by colliding continental crusts.

    The constant dipping of the lithosphere induces earthquakes.

    The convergence of the plates created subduction resulting in trench formation.

    The divergence of crusts created under thrusting which resulted in the formation of trenches.

  • Q10

    Which wave carries energy from the focus to the surface of the earth?

    Seismic waves

    Electromagnetic waves

    Sound waves

    Ocean waves

    S10ES –Ia-j-36.2
  • Q11

    Which of the statements BEST describes the time difference between S and P waves?

    It is the delay in the time of arrival of the S waves.

    It indicates the epicenter of the earthquake.

    The smaller the difference, the farther the distance of the earthquake.

    It indicates the distance of an earthquake in the seismograph.

  • Q12

    The boundary Juan de Fuca Plate is compressing against the North American Plate resulting in the formation of volcanoes and mountain ranges. The Juan de Fuca and North American Plates have ________________ type of plate boundary.

  • Q13

    What are colliding when plateaus and mountain ranges are formed?

    Cannot be determined

    Ocean-ocean convergent plates

    Continent- ocean convergent plates

    Continent-continent plates

  • Q14

    What causes the other plate to subduct beneath the other plate during convergence?

    The overriding plate is heavier than the other plate.

    The material of the other plate is denser than the other.

    The plate that sinks beneath the other moved first than the other.

    The plates have the same components, and the overriding is by chance.

  • Q15

    The following shows the difference between convergent plate boundary and divergent plate boundary EXCEPT _______________________.

    A divergent plate boundary forms a rift valley while a convergent boundary forms a trench.

    Plates in a divergent boundary are drifted away while in a convergent boundary are moving towards each other.

    A divergent plate boundary produces new crust while a convergent boundary destroys old crust.

    A divergent plate boundary usually occurs in the seafloor while a convergent boundary occurs only on the continental crust.
