Which of the following describes the events of the Acadian Orogeny?
 
  A) Closing of the marginal sea caused a volcanic arc to be thrust over the continent
  B) North America collided with a microcontinent as the marginal sea continued to close
  C) The sea along North America closed completely as Africa collided with North America
  D) The rifting of Pangaea opened the modern Atlantic Ocean



Q. 2 - Which of the following describes the events of the Taconic Orogeny?
 
  A) Closing of the marginal sea caused a volcanic arc to be thrust over the continent
  B) North America collided with a microcontinent as the marginal sea continued to close
  C) The sea along North America closed completely as Africa collided with North America
  D) The rifting of Pangaea opened the modern Atlantic Ocean



Q. 3 - As India is colliding with Asia, the margin of Asia is experiencing significant deformation. What is happening to the rocks that are being deformed?
 
  A) They are being subducted into the mantle
  B) They are being melted to become magma plutons
  C) They are being displaced to the southeast to make up Southeast Asia
  D) They are breaking off to form microcontinents



Q. 4 - India has been colliding with Asia for roughly 50 million years, a process that has uplifted the Tibetan Plateau. However, although the margin of Asia has been intensely deformed, India has remained largely intact. Why is this the case?
 
  A) Asia's margin is composed of soft materials such as shale and sandstone
  B) There is a mantle plume beneath the Asian continent that softens the plate, permitting deformation
  C) Asia's rocks are over 2 billion years old and are so dense they are sinking back into the mantle
  D) Most of India is tough, durable, ancient shield material and is harder than the newer Asian material



Q. 5 - Which mountain range consists of the youngest collisional mountains on Earth?
 
  A) Himalayas
  B) Andes
  C) Grand Tetons
  D) Appalachians

  A) compressional; tensional
  B) shear; compressional
  C) tensional; shear
  D) shear; tensional

  A) Illinois
  B) Hawaii
  C) California
  D) Colorado

(Answer to question 7 )  Answer: C

(Answer to question 8 )  Some possible answers:
 Higher temperatures will mean more evaporation, so there should be more evidence of droughts. Note: Fewer students recognize that increased temperatures invigorate all aspects of the hydrologic cycle, so that increased evaporation will also mean increased precipitation. However, since the evaporation and precipitation processes do not necessarily happen equally at the same locations, some places can expect drought whereas other can anticipate increased rainfall.
 Less snowfall in mountains during the winter, which will be recorded by how long ski resorts are open from year to year.
 Geographic ranges of plants and animals should change as temperatures change, allowing warm-climate plants and animals to expand to higher latitudes and higher elevations. So, historic records should show appearances of animals and plants in recent years that were not seen in the same location previously.
 Tropical diseases and parasites will expand north and south from the equator, so records should show expanding ranges of these diseases and parasites.
