Explanation:

What are the two possible causes of an earthquake? Describe each.

*Volcanic Eruptions –  The primary driver of the quake is volcanic ejections. Such kind of quakes happens in regions, with regular volcanic exercises.

*Structural Movements – The outer layer of the earth comprises of certain plates, containing the upper mantle. These plates are continually moving, in this manner influencing the worlds hull.

1. Enumerate the different parts of an earthquake.

*Tectonic

*Volcanic

*Collapse

*Explosion

2. Differentiate intensity from magnitude.

–  Magnitude is a proportion of tremor size and stays unaltered with distance from the quake. Intensity, notwithstanding, portrays the level of shaking brought about by a seismic tremor at a given spot and diminishes with distance from the quake focal point.

3. Enumerate at least three possible effects of an earthquake.

*Ground shaking

*Landslide

*Tsunami

4. What is a Convergent boundary?​

– A Convergent boundary (otherwise called a damaging limit) is a region on Earth where at least two lithospheric plates impact. One plate ultimately slides underneath the other, a cycle known as subduction.
