It is also said that the reason why Kangaroos can only be found in Australia is because they were isolated from the rest of the world when Australia drifted away through the process of continental drift. Since there were no other means for these species to go someplace else and develop, they had nowhere else to go but to stay in the continent of Australia.

The saltiest ocean from the given choices is letter A or Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic Ocean is much saltier than the Pacific, Indian and Arctic Oceans because of several reasons: It may either be because of the water vapor transport which is carried by the trade winds across the Isthmus of Central America.

It is also probably because some of the water evaporates from the Atlantic Ocean and is then carried into other oceans – because of this process, other oceans become fresher while the Atlantic Ocean becomes saltier from constantly losing fresh water. Although the Atlantic Ocean is saltier than other oceans, please remember that the oceans compensate each other through the process called interocean exchange – other oceans bring back freshwater to the Atlantic.
