Rocks and the rock cycle test

Rocks and the Rock Cycle Test

If you need to take or retake the Rocks and the Rock Cycle portion of the test, answer questions #1-#11. If not, skip to question #12 to take the Weathering and Erosion portion of the test.


Question 1

Question #1

A student classified the rock below as sedimentary. Which observation about the rock best supports this classification?

(A) The rock is composed of several minerals.

(B) The rock has a vesicular texture.

(C) The rock contains fragments of other rocks.

(D) The rock shows distorted and stretched pebbles.


Question 2

Question #2

The photograph below shows an igneous rock. What is the origin and rate of formation of this rock (all of the circular areas are holes in the rock)?

(A) plutonic with slow cooling

(B) plutonic with rapid cooling

(C) volcanic with slow cooling

(D) volcanic with rapid cooling


Question 3

Question #3

What type of rock is shown in the picture to the right?

A. Sedimentary

B. Igneous

C. Metamorphic


Question 4

Question #4

What is the origin of the course-grained igneous rock shown below?

(A) lava that cooled slowly on Earth’s surface

(B) lava that cooled quickly on Earth’s surface

(C) magma that cooled slowly beneath the Earth’s surface

(D) magma that cooled quickly in beneath the Earth’s surface 


Question 5

Question #5

The wavy bands of light and dark minerals visible in the metamorphic rock below probably formed from the

(A) cementing together of individual mineral grains

(B) cooling and crystallization of magma

(C) evaporation of an ancient ocean

(D) heat and pressure during metamorphism


Question 6

Question #6

All of the rock I am looking at in the picture below formed from sand. A shallow sea of saltwater covered the sand and then evaporated. The mineral residue from the saltwater solution cemented the sand grains together, forming a material that is most similar in origin to

(A) an extrusive igneous rock(B) an intrusive igneous rock

(C) a clastic sedimentary rock(D) a foliated metamorphic rock

Question #19

The illustration below shows an arch of rock located in Utah. (Yes that’s me in the picture.) How did the arch most likely form?

(A) The rock in the arch was more resistant to erosion than

the surrounding rock that was eroded.

(B) An earthquake forced bedrock upward in the shape of

an arch.

(C) Sand and gravel were deposited and compacted in the

shape of an arch.

(D) An underground glacier tunneled through the bedrock.
