Each continent consists of multiple countries, which may vary in size, population, and cultural diversity. The division of continents into countries allows for the organization and governance of different regions and facilitates international relations and cooperation.

He claimed the entire Mississippi River basin for France and named it Louisiana in honor of King Louis XIV. La Salle's expeditions greatly contributed to the European knowledge of the interior of North America. He is also known for establishing the first European settlement in Texas, Fort St. Louis.

    Which of the following creates islands like Hawaii?

    • A.

      Erosio

    • B.

      Volcanoes

    • C.

      Earthquakes

    • D.

      Glaciers

    Correct Answer
    B. Volcanoes
    Explanation
    Volcanoes create islands like Hawaii. This is because Hawaii is a volcanic archipelago formed by a hotspot beneath the Pacific tectonic plate. As the plate moves over the hotspot, magma rises to the surface, creating volcanic eruptions. Over time, repeated eruptions build up layers of lava and ash, forming islands. This process continues as the plate moves, resulting in a chain of volcanic islands, with the youngest island being the one currently over the hotspot.

      Hawaii

      Great Lakes

    • C.

      Grand Canyon

    • D.

      Rocky Mountains

    Correct Answer
    C. Grand Canyon
    Explanation
    The Grand Canyon is caused by erosion. Over millions of years, the Colorado River has carved through layers of rock, creating the deep and majestic canyon that we see today. The force of the flowing water, combined with the abrasive action of sediment and rocks carried by the river, has gradually eroded the rock layers, shaping the canyon's steep cliffs and unique formations.

It is a natural flowing watercourse, usually freshwater, that is often found in valleys and can be formed by various factors such as rainfall, melting snow, or underground springs. Rivers play a crucial role in the water cycle, transporting water and nutrients, shaping the landscape, and providing habitats for various species of plants and animals.
