Question

At the boundaries the magma reaches to the surfaces and formation of ridges take place on which area?

  1. Ocean beds
  2. Land
  3. Rocks
  4. Settled sand

hintHint:

Ocean beds

The correct answer is: Ocean beds


    • At the boundaries the magma reaches to the surfaces and formation of ridges take place which is known ocean beds.
    • So, the correct option is a.

    • Where plates converge, one plate may move under the other causing earthquakes, forming volcanoes, or creating deep ocean trenches.
    • Where plates diverge from each other, molten magma flows upward between the plates, forming mid-ocean ridges, underwater volcanoes, hydrothermal vents, and new ocean floor crust.

    Salinity in ocean water decrease when_____________.

    • Near the equator, the tropics receive the most rain on a consistent basis. As a result, the fresh water falling into the ocean helps decrease the salinity of the surface water in that region.
    • As we move toward the poles, the region of rain decreases and with less rain and more sunshine, evaporation increases.
