2. The discontinuity which marks the lower boundary of the crust is


a) Crust-Mantle discontinuity
b) Oceanic discontinuity
c) SIAL layer
d) Mohorovicic discontinuity
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: Mohorovicic discontinuity marks the lower boundary of the crust which is the first layer of the Earth.

3. The granite layer in the crust is also referred to as


a) SIAL
b) SIMA
c) SLAM
d) SILA
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: SIAL stands for Silicon and Aluminium and as per the name it is made up of the two elements and
hence the name.

4. The density of the oceanic layer in the crust is said to be


a) 3.00 g/cc
b) 2.50 g/cc
c) 1.90 g/cc
d) 2.00 g/cc
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: The oceanic crust is estimated to have a volume of 2.54*109 cc with an average density of 3.00
g/cc.

5. The depth at which the Mohorovicic discontinuity occurs is


a) 90-100 km
b) 50-60 km
c) 70-80 km
d) 30-40 km
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: Mohorovicic discontinuity from seismic evidence is determined that it is approximately at a depth of
30-40 km.

6. What is the speed attained by the P-waves in the C-layer under the Continental crust?
a) 6 to 7.6 km/sec
b) 3 to 4 km/sec
https://www.sanfoundry.com/engineering-geology-questions-answers-crust/ 4/9
c) 5 to
8/5/2018 6.3 km/sec Crust - Engineering Geology Questions and Answers - Sanfoundry

d) 1.8 to 2.5 km/sec


View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: The C-layer is the lowermost layer of the continental crust and here the P-waves attain velocity as
high as 6 to 7.6 km/sec.

7. The layer under the continental crust with the density of 2.4 to 2.6 g/cc
a) A-layer
b) B-layer
c) C-layer
d) D-layer
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: The Middle layer or B-layer of the continental crust is relatively dense compared to A-layer and the
density is said to be 2.4 to 2.6 g/cc.

8. The expansion of SIMA is


a) Silicon and Manganese
b) Silicon and Magnesium
c) Strontium and Manganese
d) Strontium and Magnesium
View Answer

Answer: b

Explanation: Silicon and Magnesium. The C-layer under the continental crust is rich in Silicon and Magnesium
and hence the layer is also sometimes called SIMA.

9. The oceanic layer is the extension of C-layer of the continental crust and A and B-layer are mostly absent. State
whether true or false.
a) True
b) False
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: The oceanic crust is the extension of C-layer of the continental crust that makes the top layer of the
oceans in most cases, A and B layers being practically absent from there.

10. The least dense layer among the layers under the continental crust is
a) A-layer
b) B-layer
c) C-layer
d) D-layer
View Answer
https://www.sanfoundry.com/engineering-geology-questions-answers-crust/ 5/9
Answer:
8/5/2018 a Crust - Engineering Geology Questions and Answers - Sanfoundry

Explanation: The A or the upper layer is between 2 to 10 km thick and is of low density, 2.00 g/cc.

11. The area not considered under the crust is


a) Mountainous area
b) Continental area
c) Oceanic area
d) Glacial area
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: The first the options, Mountainous, Continental and Oceanic areas are studied separately whereas
Glacial area is not considered under study of the crust as such.
