The correct answers are:

1. Mariana Trench - the deepest ocean depth in the world is found here;

Located near the North Mariana Islands, the Mariana Trench is a place where the Eurasian, Philippine, and Pacific plates have their boundary, which contributed to this incredibly deep crack in the ocean crust.

2. Archipelago - chain of islands;

Archipelago is a term that is used for a chain of islands, made in the same way by the same factors, and usually they are in close proximity,even though there's exceptions.

3. Great Barrier Reef - Australia's natural wonder that can be seen from space;

This is the biggest coral reef in the whole world, and it stretches along the eastern and northeastern coast of Australia;

4. Ring of Fire - D. 75 percent of the world's active volcanoes are located here;

The Ring of Fire is located alongside the boundary of the Pacific plate with the other plates, and since there's subduction zones all over its boundary, there's lots of active volcanoes.

What is the most likely reason that two of the planets have rotations that are different than would be expected by the nebular hypothesis? As the dust cloud collapsed due to gravity, the protostar's gravity sent out shock waves As the growing planet was clearing it's path around the sun, two large planetessimals collided, tipping the growing planet Gravitation influence of other planets They just got tired

The most appropriate answer is "As the growing planet was clearing its path around the sun, two large planetessimals collided, tipping the growing planet". This phenomenon happened to the earth in the early stages of the development of the solar system. Scientist theorize that a planet called 'Thea' collided with the Earth. This collision resulted in the present tilt in the Earth's axis and the creation of the moon.

What can our oceans tell us about Earth's structure and formation?

The ocean is not just where the land happens to be covered by water. The sea floor is geologically distinct from the continents. It is locked in a perpetual cycle of birth and destruction that shapes the ocean and controls much of the geology and geological history of the continents. Geological processes that occur beneath the waters of the sea affect not only marine life, but dry land as well.
