Dear Mr. President:

My research team and I have been studying Earthquakes for the past month. To be specific we've been asked questions like: Do earthquakes occur all over the earth's surface or in isolated regions.

To answer your question, they don't occur all over the earth's surface. I think most earthquakes happen in certain states like California. I think this because most of these places have cracks in the ground, and where there is a crack in the ground that certain spot is most  prone to an earthquake.

Sincerely,



Ashley Y.
