5 True/False questions
Epicenter → the point on the earth's surface directly above the focus
Solids → the area along a fault where slippage first occurs
P-waves → can only travel through solids, and are the second to be recored
San Andreas Fault → move the slowest, and are the last to be recorded
Seismic Gaps → zone of rock where the fault is locked, and no major earthquakes have happened in a long time
