Read the passage below. Then, answer the questions.
The Himalaya Mountains The Himalaya Mountains are a range of mountains that is 2,400 km long and that arcs across Pakistan, India, Tibet, Nepal, Sikkim, and Bhutan. The Himalaya Mountains are the highest mountains on Earth. Fourteen mountains in this range, including Mount Everest, rise to heights of more than 8,000 m above sea level. Mount Everest, the tallest above-water mountain on Earth, stands 8,850 m tall.
The formation of the Himalaya Mountains began about 50 million years ago. A tectonic plate carrying the Indian subcontinent collided with the Eurasian plate. The Indian plate was denser than the Eurasian plate. This difference in density caused the uplifting of the Eurasian plate and the subsequent formation of the Himalaya Mountains. This process continues today. The Indian plate continues to push under the Eurasian plate. New measurements show that Mount Everest is moving to the northeast by as much as 10 cm per year.

Base your answer on the information below. Like many other mineral resources, the United States imports most of the uranium it uses. Only about 8 percent of the uranium we use comes from our country. About 44 percent comes from Canada and Australia. Russia is the third major source, supplying 35 percent. All other nations provide the remaining 13 percent. If Russia were to cut off all exports of uranium to the United States, what would be the most logical foreign source to make up the shortage?
