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.

Which of the following is not a way that water reaches earths atmosphere

I see that you did not list down any choices (or perhaps you forgot to include them) but it's ok, because I'm pretty sure that the answer is CONDENSATION.

It is the formation of liquid drops of water from water vapor. It is the process which creates clouds, making it necessary for weather activity.

On Earth's atmosphere, however, only 1% of it consists of water vapor.

The formed liquid water soon goes down to the surface through precipitation.

Why are non-metallic minerals likely to found where an ocean or body of water once existed?


Mineral Resources
Almost all Earth materials are used by humans for something. We require metals for making machines, sands and gravels for making roads and buildings, sand for making computer chips, limestone and gypsum for making concrete, clays for making ceramics, gold, silver, copper and aluminum for making electric circuits, and diamonds and corundum (sapphire, ruby, emerald) for abrasives and jewelry.
In this discussion, we hope to answer the following questions:
What constitutes a mineral resource and an ore?
What determines whether or not a mineral sources is economical to exploit?
By what processes do ores form?
How are mineral resources found and exploited?
What happens when a mineral resource become scarce as a result of human consumption?
What are the adverse effects of exploiting mineral resource. Mineral resources can be divided into two major categories - Metallic and Nonmetallic.   Metallic resources are things like Gold, Silver, Tin, Copper, Lead, Zinc, Iron, Nickel, Chromium, and Aluminum. Nonmetallic resources are things like sand, gravel, gypsum, halite, Uranium, dimension stone.
A mineral resource is a volume of rock enriched in one or more useful materials. In this sense a mineral refers to a useful material, a definition that is different from the way we defined a mineral back in Chapter 5. Here the word mineral can be any substance that comes from the Earth.

Which part of the water cycle removes salt from seawater? A. Rivers flow between towns and empty into the ocean. B. Rain washes across the fields and flows into streams. C. Water evaporates and comes back down as rain. D. Tap water gets used and goes down the drain.

I think the correct answer from the choices would be water evaporates and comes back down as rain. It is during evaporation that salt is removed from the water since it does not turn into gas at atmospheric conditions. Hope this helps.

Which of the following statements best explains the cause of the great fire of Rome in 65 CE? A. The homes were made of wooden materials and built close together, allowing the fire to spread quickly. B. Sparks from a volcanic eruption set the neighboring countryside on fire before spreading quickly throughout the city. C. Poor sanitation caused gutters to back up with debris, lessening the city’s ability to respond with adequate water resources and allowing the fire to spread quickly. D. An invading army from Judea set the city’s temple on fire; the rest of the city caught fire quickly, and the city was destroyed.

During the night of July 18, 64 AD, fire broke out in the merchant area of the city of Rome. Fanned by summer winds, the flames quickly spread through the dry, wooden structures of the Imperial City. Soon the fire took on a life of its own consuming all in its path for six days and seven nights. When the conflagration finally ran its course it left seventy percent of the city in smoldering ruins.

Rumors soon arose accusing the Emperor Nero of ordering the torching of the city and standing on the summit of the Palatine playing his lyre as flames devoured the world around him. These rumors have never been confirmed. In fact, Nero rushed to Rome from his palace in Antium (Anzio) and ran about the city all that first night without his guards directing efforts to quell the blaze. But the rumors persisted and the Emperor looked for a scapegoat. He found it in the Christians, at that time a rather obscure religious sect with a small following in the city. To appease the masses, Nero literally had his victims fed to the lions during giant spectacles held in the city's remaining amphitheater.

From the ashes of the fire rose a more spectacular Rome. A city made of marble and stone with wide streets, pedestrian arcades and ample supplies of water to quell any future blaze. The debris from the fire was used to fill the malaria-ridden marshes that had plagued the city for generations.
