    [d] The oceans are mostly under laid by dark coloured followed down by a thick greenish and tremendously hot layer of magma. Acidic waves are highly viscous due to pre-dame of silica content with high melting point and are light (yellowish).                                        Inter montane plateaus are found in the regions of young fold mountain as a characteristic feature of these mountain ranges, The zone of low-velocity of seismic waves is found between the lithosphere and the asthenosphere, so Statement 4 is incorrect.
