How Much Do You Really Know About Plate Tectonics? Trivia Quiz

How Much Do You Really Know About Plate Tectonics? This is the motion of plates on the earth's lithosphere that are attributed for the formation of continents as we know them. Do you know what can be found below the earth’s surface? The question below is perfect for helping you find out. Do give it a shot and see how well you will do.
