1. Which of the following determines whether a
resource is a renewable resource or a
nonrenewable resource? A the cost for obtaining
and using the resource B the effects of the
resource on the environment C whether the
resource is used to generate energy or is made
into products D the rate at which the resource
can be replaced

5. Which type of fuel forms when pressure and
heat cause changes in the remains of swamp
plants? A coal B gasohol C petroleum D natural gas

6. What percentage of the electric power
generated in 2003 came from sources that
originated from the sun? A 85 B 93 C 96 D 100

7. Why is the energy that is generated at a
hydroelectric dam dependent on the sun? A The
suns gravity causes water to flow. B Energy
from the sun powers the water cycle. C Sunlight
gets rid of the pollution created by
hydroelectric dams. D Sunlight is the source of
energy in the fuels burned by hydroelectric dams.

13. Which of the following provides evidence
that environmental conditions on Earth have
changed? A a fossilized footprint found in lava

15. Which of the following statements correctly
describes information contained in the fossil
record? A The fossil record contains more
information on soft-bodied organisms than on
hard-bodied organisms. B The fossil record
provides paleontologists with a continuous record
of changes in organisms. C The fossil record
contains information on the majority of organisms
that have lived. D The fossil record reveals a
history of environmental change.

uniformly. B Most geologic change occurs
gradually and uniformly. C All geologic change
occurs rapidly and catastrophically. D Most
geologic change occurs rapidly and

17. A small reptile of the genus Mesosaurus
lived 260 million years ago and is now extinct.
Fossils of this reptile have been found in both
South America and southern Africa. Which of the
following statements best explains why the
fossils were found on both continents? A At one
time, the continents were joined. B The reptile
swam across the Atlantic Ocean. C The reptile
traveled across a land bridge. D People brought
the reptile to South America.

18. Which of the following would be an example
of gradual geologic change? A a volcanic
eruption B an earthquake-generated tsunami C a
global rise in sea level D an asteroid striking

Use the diagram to answer question 10.
19. Determine what sequence of events occurred
in the rock layers shown in the diagram.
A An intrusion formed, and then the rock layers
formed around the intrusion. B First, the bottom
rock layer formed. The, the intrusion formed.
Finally, the other rock layers formed. C The
rock layers were folded, and then an intrusion
cut through the layers. D The rock layers
formed, and then an intrusion cut through some of
the layers.

20. Fossils of coniferous leaves and wood that
date to the Early Eocene Epoch have been found in
Antarctica. The trees are similar to species
found today in southern Argentina and in Chile.
What does the presence of these fossils suggest
about the past environment of Antarctica?

22. How do mid-ocean ridges support both the idea
of continental drift and the theory of plate
tectonics? A Oceanic lithosphere is destroyed at
mid-ocean ridges. B New crust forms at mid-ocean
ridges. C Tectonic plates collide at mid-ocean
