Q:

The greenhouse effect is caused by

 A) Deforestation B) Burning of Fossil Fuels C) Increase in Population D) All of the above

Explanation:

The major greenhouse gases (GHG’s) solely responsible for greenhouse effect are Carbon dioxide, Ozone, Methane and Water vapor. Although these gases comprise 1% of our atmosphere, they act like a thick warm blanket outside that surrounds this planet and regulate climate control. Greenhouse effect is not bad. In fact, it is needed for all of us to survive on planet Earth. In short, the greenhouse effect is nothing but a naturally occurring process designed by nature that aids in heating earth’s surface and helps to maintain ecological balance.

Now, while some of that heat dissipates into space, some of it burns along the atmosphere, and some of it penetrates the atmosphere and finds its way into the lower atmosphere and the planet’s surface. This in turn raises the average temperature of the Earth. Therefore, the increase in the Earth’s surface temperature due to increase in the number of greenhouse gases leads to global warming.

* Burning of Fossil Fuels

* Deforestation

* Increase in Population

Q:

A cavern is an underground chamber formed by

 A) Erosion B) Runoff C) Deposition D) Evaporation

Explanation:

Caverns are openings in the ground. Some famous caverns in the United States are Mammoth Cave, Carlsbad Caverns, Wind Cave, and Luray Caverns.

When rainwater trickles down through the soil, it carries carbon dioxide from the air with it. This turns acidic as it moves through the soil, joining with carbon from decaying plants. This acidic rainwater then eats away at, or erodes, the rock under the ground, forming a cave or cavern. For this process to occur, the rock must be the right type; limestone, dolomite, and gypsum are common.
