Please I need help with this midterm question! I have been trying to figure it out for 2 hours!
I am trying to study for my Earth Science midterm for college tomorrow, and this question is just confusing me! Can anyone please answer it anytime soon? A new residential development is being planned at the base of a mountain near an active
