Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What part of the Earth is made of a dense ball of metal?

    • A.

      Crust

    • B.

      Inner Core

    • C.

      Outer Core

    • D.

      Mantle

    Correct Answer
    B. Inner Core
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Inner Core. The inner core is the innermost layer of the Earth, located beneath the outer core. It is a dense ball of solid metal, primarily composed of iron and nickel. The immense pressure in the Earth's core causes the metal to be in a solid state despite its extremely high temperature. The inner core plays a crucial role in generating the Earth's magnetic field and contributes to the overall structure and stability of our planet.

  • 4. 

    What is plate tectonics (definition)?

    Correct Answer
    convection currents cause by the unequal distribution of heat within the earth's core which causes the plates to move 2. mantle- second layer, made of dense rocks 3. outer core- third layer, made of metal 4. inner core- inner part of earth, made of dense ball of iron and nickle
    Explanation
    Plate tectonics refers to the movement of Earth's lithospheric plates, which are large sections of the Earth's crust and upper mantle. This movement is caused by convection currents, which are created by the unequal distribution of heat within the Earth's core. The mantle, located beneath the crust, is composed of dense rocks. The outer core is the third layer of the Earth, consisting of metal, while the inner core is the innermost part of the Earth, made up of a dense ball of iron and nickel.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The ________ __________ is the oldest landform region.

    Correct Answer
    Canadian Shield
    Explanation
    The Canadian Shield is considered the oldest landform region because it is composed of some of the oldest rocks on Earth, dating back billions of years. This region formed during the Precambrian era through volcanic activity and tectonic forces. Over time, erosion and glaciation shaped the landscape, resulting in the rugged and rocky terrain that characterizes the Canadian Shield today. This landform region is also known for its rich mineral deposits and diverse ecosystems.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What landfrom region has the oldest mountains?

    • A.

      Innuitian Mountains

    • B.

      Appalaichian Mountains

    Correct Answer
    B. Appalaichian Mountains
    Explanation
    The Appalachian Mountains are considered to be the oldest mountain range in the world. They formed around 480 million years ago during the Paleozoic Era. Over time, erosion has worn down these mountains, making them less rugged compared to younger mountain ranges. The Innuitian Mountains, on the other hand, are located in the Canadian Arctic and are much younger, having formed in the Mesozoic Era. Therefore, the Appalachian Mountains are the correct answer as they have the oldest mountains.

    The 4 interior parts of the Earth are the Crust, Mantle, Inner Core, and Outer Core.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the Earth is composed of four interior layers. The crust is the outermost layer, followed by the mantle, which is made up of solid and semi-solid rock. The inner core is a solid sphere of iron and nickel at the center, while the outer core is a liquid layer surrounding the inner core. These four layers form the structure of the Earth's interior.

    What landform region is ''Canada's Breadbasket''?

    • A.

      Canadian Shield

    • B.

      Western Cordillera

    • C.

      Interior Plains

    • D.

      Appalaichians

    Correct Answer
    C. Interior Plains
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Interior Plains. The Interior Plains region in Canada is often referred to as "Canada's Breadbasket" because it is the country's most significant agricultural region. It is characterized by flat to gently rolling terrain, fertile soils, and a continental climate that is ideal for crop cultivation. This region is known for its production of wheat, canola, barley, and other crops, making it a vital agricultural area in Canada. The Canadian Shield is a different landform region characterized by ancient rocks and rugged terrain, while the Western Cordillera and Appalachians are mountainous regions.

    What are all the geologic eras in order?

    Correct Answer
    cenozoic, mesozoic, paleozoic, precambrian 2. same mountains on both sides of the atlantic ocean 3. found same fossils of plants and animals in both continents
    Explanation
    The correct answer is cenozoic, mesozoic, paleozoic, precambrian. This is the correct order of the geologic eras, starting with the most recent era (cenozoic) and ending with the oldest era (precambrian). The statement about the same mountains on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean is not related to the order of geologic eras. Similarly, the statement about finding the same fossils of plants and animals in both continents is also not relevant to the order of geologic eras.

    Ocean Currents: The temperature of the ocean getting carried by air/wind to land resulting in the land having the same temperature as the ocean

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Ocean currents play a significant role in transferring heat from the ocean to the land, resulting in similar temperatures. As warm ocean currents flow towards the land, they release heat energy into the atmosphere, influencing the climate and temperature of coastal regions. This process helps to moderate temperatures, making them more stable and similar to those of the adjacent ocean. Therefore, the statement is true as ocean currents do carry the temperature of the ocean to the land, leading to similar temperatures.

    This type of precipitation happens mostly in the summer months.

    • A.

      Relief

    • B.

      Cyclonic

    • C.

      Convectional

    Correct Answer
    C. Convectional
    Explanation
    Convectional precipitation occurs mostly in the summer months. This type of precipitation is caused by the heating of the Earth's surface, which leads to the formation of warm air currents that rise into the atmosphere. As the warm air rises, it cools and condenses, forming clouds and eventually precipitation. In the summer, the sun's rays are more intense, causing greater heating of the Earth's surface and therefore more convectional precipitation. Relief precipitation is caused by the lifting of moist air over mountains, while cyclonic precipitation is associated with low-pressure systems and frontal boundaries.

    The 4 components of soil are:

    • A.

      Air - plants need air to breath/grow like humans

    • B.

      Moisture - plants absorb water through their roots

    • C.

      Minerals - provide nutrients for the plants

    • D.

      Bacteria and organic materials - food source for the plant (humus)

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because all four components mentioned (air, moisture, minerals, bacteria and organic materials) are essential for the growth and survival of plants. Plants need air for respiration, moisture for water absorption, minerals for obtaining nutrients, and bacteria and organic materials (such as humus) as a food source. Therefore, all of these components are necessary for plants to thrive in the soil.

    Latitude in LOWER is the weather depending on where you are, the farther you are from the equator, the colder it is.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that latitude does indeed affect the weather. The farther away from the equator you are, the colder it tends to be. This is because the angle at which the sun's rays hit the Earth becomes more oblique as you move away from the equator, resulting in less direct sunlight and lower temperatures. Therefore, it is true that the weather gets colder as you move farther from the equator, making the statement correct.

      The land having the same temperature as an ocean near it

    • C.

      The land has more rain when living near water

    • D.

      IDK

    Correct Answer
    A. When air absorbs air moist from the ocean and gets released by rain when the air goes over land
    Explanation
    The correct answer explains that winds and air masses in LOWERN refer to the process of air absorbing moisture from the ocean and releasing it as rain when the air moves over land. This process occurs when there is a temperature difference between the land and the nearby ocean. The land having the same temperature as the ocean near it or the fact that the land has more rain when living near water are not accurate explanations for winds and air masses in LOWERN.

    What type of trees has needles instead of leaves?

    • A.

      Coniferous

    • B.

      Decidious

    Correct Answer
    A. Coniferous
    Explanation
    Coniferous trees have needles instead of leaves. This adaptation helps them conserve water in cold and dry environments. The needles are also covered in a waxy coating that reduces water loss through evaporation. This enables coniferous trees to thrive in harsh conditions and retain their foliage throughout the year. Examples of coniferous trees include pine, spruce, fir, and cedar. Deciduous trees, on the other hand, have broad leaves that they shed during the winter months.

    Tied aid refers to the practice of providing aid to a country with the condition that a significant portion of it is used to purchase goods or services from the donor country. This mechanism is typically associated with formal aid, as it involves a formal agreement between the donor and recipient countries. In this context, "formal aid" refers to official development assistance provided by governments or international organizations. Therefore, the statement that tied aid only works with formal aid is true, as it accurately reflects the nature of tied aid and its relationship with formal aid mechanisms.

    One of the problems the host country has in MNCs is that profits can get taken out of the host country.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    MNCs (Multinational Corporations) can repatriate their profits from the host country, which means that the profits generated in the host country can be transferred back to the home country of the MNC. This can be a problem for the host country as it leads to a drain of financial resources and can hinder economic development. Therefore, the statement "profits can get taken out of the host country" is true.

    Which plate boundary creates mountains?

    • A.

      Divergent

    • B.

      Convergent Collision

    • C.

      Transform

    • D.

      Convergent Subduction

    Correct Answer
    B. Convergent Collision
    Explanation
    Convergent collision plate boundaries occur when two tectonic plates collide and push against each other. This collision causes the crust to buckle and fold, leading to the formation of mountains. The collision forces the rocks to compress and uplift, creating large mountain ranges such as the Himalayas. This process is responsible for the creation of some of the most iconic mountain ranges in the world.

    This type of precipitation happens mostly in the Prairies and Atlantic Canada.

    • A.

      Relief

    • B.

      Cyclonic

    • C.

      Convectional

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Cyclonic
    Explanation
    Cyclonic precipitation refers to the type of precipitation that occurs as a result of cyclones or low-pressure systems. These systems are common in the Prairies and Atlantic Canada regions, leading to cyclonic precipitation being the predominant type of precipitation in these areas. This type of precipitation is caused by the upward motion of warm, moist air along the cyclone's front, which then cools and condenses, resulting in rainfall or snowfall. Therefore, the given answer, "Cyclonic," is the most suitable explanation for the type of precipitation that occurs mostly in the Prairies and Atlantic Canada.

    • D.

      IDK

    Correct Answer
    C. The higher you are, the colder it is
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "the higher you are, the colder it is." This answer explains that elevation refers to the height above sea level and states that as the elevation increases, the temperature decreases. This is because as you go higher in the atmosphere, the air becomes thinner and cannot retain heat as effectively, resulting in colder temperatures.
