Dear President,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Iím writing to tell you about the solution to the problem you gave me on my mission. The most recent earthquakes are occurring at the edges of California, the East Coast of Asia, and the southern coast of Europe. They are more likely to occur there because thatís were some earthquakes are occurring. Yes you could determine what parts of the world are most prone to them because thatís were high risks zones of earthquakes are. There is a relationship between earthquakes and volcanoes. A reason why is they both make the same damage. Also they both occur at the same places. The thing thatís causing the earthquake is that the Earth's plates are spreading apart or crashing towards each other. Thatís all of the solutions you gave on my mission.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Your scientist,                                                                                                                                                                                Arturo E
