Question:

When do you use MLA format?

Michelle K.
Answer:

MLA stands for Modern Language Association which is an organization that publishes a style and formatting guide for non-fiction, usually scholarly, writing. MLA format is used in liberal arts writing, while other formats like APA or CSE are used for other subject areas. For example, if you are writing a paper about a novel you have read you would use MLA format because interpreting a fictional piece of writing is a facet of the liberal arts.

Question:

What causes earthquakes?

Michelle K.
Answer:

The Earth's outermost layer is called the crust and is made up of large plates of rock that float on top of a semi-liquid layer called the mantle. Sometimes these large plates of rock rub against each other or crash into each other and cause the land or water above them to shake. We call this shaking an earthquake.
