Dear Mr. President:

After my research where me and my research team studied earthquakes, we can answer your questions. Our team deserves funding earthquake research because we can make people aware of possible earthquakes near them,  understand what earthquakes are, and learn how to avoid earthquakes knowing when they occur ahead of time.

Earthquakes occur mostly in the "Ring of Fire" which is around  the Pacific Ocean, and includes Canada 's west coast it is also occurs in United States, Japan, and India.

Yes, there is a way to determine what part of the world are most prone to them. Earthquakes usually occur along the active fault lines.

Yes, there is a  relationship between volcanoes and earthquakes. They are both caused by the movement causes lava to move toward the surface, it is a sing that a volcano will erupt.
