It's the Ural Mountain Range that separates Europe from Asia. So, option D. The Urals is the correct answer.

You might be surprised to know that the Ural mountains were even higher than the Himalayas millions ofyears ago. It is also said that it is one of the oldest mountain ranges on the earth. These mountains extend about 2,500 km (1,600 mi) from the Kara Sea to the Kazakh Steppe.

The Ural Mountains separate Europe from Asia which means that the answer to this question is letter D. This mountain range starts from the southern side up to the western side of Russia. The areas that are not high are still separated by the Volga river so that it will be clear which is still part of the European continent and which part is already in Asia.

There are different geographical boundaries that separate Europe from Asia such as the Dardanelles, Bosphorus, and the Caucasus. There are some people who try to cross the border but this will not be possible unless they have the right documents that will prove that they can visit the country that they want to enter from where they are from.

There are a lot of people who are surprised to learn that Europe and Asia are actually connected. These two continents are separated by different natural formations. For the mountain range, the answer to this is D. It is the Urals that separate Europe from Asia. Take note that this mountain range can be separated into different sections.

Out of all the sections that are available, the Southern Urals are the hardest to determine because it contains a lot of complicated edges and gorges. Take note that the climate in the various sections of the Ural may vary. The same way that countries from all over the world also experience different climate because of differences in location.

The Ural Mountains is a natural border between Europe and Asia. It is actually the only mountain chain that acts as a border between two continents. The mountain chain runs down through Russia. They are over 1500 miles long. Mount Narodnaya is the highest point in the mountain chain in which it stands over 6,000 feet high. There are several different sections of this mountain chain.

There are the Polar Urals, Northern Urals, Middle Urals, Southern Urals and the Neither-polar Urals. The Southern Urals are complicated in which there are many gorges and equal edges that line the sky. The climate varies to the different parts of the chain, but the mountains located in the west have a milder climate than those in the east due to the wind blowing from the western direction.
