Which of the following correctly explains why Earth is not getting bigger when new land is being created?

Seafloor spreading is a constructive force that causes new seafloor to be created at a divergent boundary, but transform boundaries turn the new crust into something else.

Seafloor spreading is a constructive force that causes new seafloor to be created at a divergent boundary. Destructive forces, like subduction, at convergent boundaries recycle old crust back into the mantel.

New land is not being created.
