    What causes the most erosion on earth?

    • A.

      Wind

    • B.

      Water

    • C.

      Friction

    • D.

      Chemicals

    Correct Answer
    B. Water
    Explanation
    Water causes the most erosion on Earth because it has the ability to wear away and transport large amounts of sediment and rock. The force of moving water, such as rivers, streams, and ocean waves, can physically break down and carry away soil and rocks, shaping the Earth's surface over time. Water erosion is responsible for the formation of valleys, canyons, and other landforms, making it the primary agent of erosion on our planet.

    Explanation
    Solar energy is a renewable resource because it is derived from the sun, which is constantly producing energy. Unlike coal, oil, and gas, which are fossil fuels that take millions of years to form and are finite in supply, solar energy is abundant and can be harnessed using solar panels. It is a clean and sustainable source of energy that does not produce harmful emissions or contribute to climate change.

    C. Core
    Explanation
    The core is the hottest layer of the Earth. It is composed of two parts, the outer core and the inner core. The outer core is made of liquid iron and nickel, while the inner core is a solid ball of iron and nickel. The temperature in the core can reach up to 5,500 degrees Celsius (9,932 degrees Fahrenheit). This extreme heat is due to the radioactive decay of elements and the residual heat from the formation of the Earth.
