Where is brittle deformation generally seen?

Where is brittle deformation generally seen? a. in rocks near earth s surface b. in gypsum and shale c. in rocks far below earth s surface d. in limestone and schist

Answers

The correct answer is A) brittle deformation is generally seen in rocks near Earth's surface - rocks with strong internal molecular bonds.

Option (A)

Explanation:

The brittle deformation zone (brittle shear zone) forms the upper portion of the crust. This includes the rocks that are present near the earth's surface. In this zone, the rocks are fractured, undergoes faulting due to the presence of a fault, and very often joints are created on the rock surface. This is because of the compressional, tensional and shear stress that forces the rock to deform.

Thus, the correct answer is option (A).
