Solution

The correct option is D Movement of Earth's plates
An earthquake is the shaking of the surface of Earth due to the sudden release of energy in the Earth's crust, as a result, seismic waves are created. Most earthquakes are caused by the movement of Earth's plates. Tremors on the earth can also be caused when a volcano erupts, a meteor hits Earth or an underground nuclear explosion is carried out.
