Quiz about earthquakes

Waves are disorder that are widened and transmit energy. Many believe that waves can only spread through water but can also be through solid matter. If it spreads with earth’s carbon, we call them earthquake. Earthquakes are very common in parts of the Earth, while in other parts of the world are rare. Earthquakes have been studying for several centuries, and in this quiz check how much you know about them.

  1. Missed two. Thankfully, I’ve never been hit by earthquakes, but felt some.
    One in 2003, I was at school at the time, the epicenter was close (30 km) but I guess it wasn’t strong enough, because we didn’t get any damage, except some scare and discomfort.
    Then I felt another in 2012, the epicenter was 200 km far. ?
    Italy is definitely a highly seismic area. ?

  2. I miss one. The last one. I almost know about earthquake because I read about them when a magnitude 7.9 hit the province in the Philippines. I was 8 when I learnes about the basic terms.
