MCQ Test: Layers Of The Earth! Quiz - Quiz

MCQ test: layers of the earth quiz! The earth is made up of different layers each with its own characteristics. The layers are the inner core, the outer core, the mantle and the crust. The inner core is solid, the outer core is liquid, and the mantle is solid/plastic. The difference is due to the relative melting points of the different layers and the increase in temperature and pressure. Do take up the quiz and see how much you know the layers.
