CBSE Class 5 English Unseen Passage H. Students should do unseen passages for Class 6 English which will help them to get better marks in English class tests and exams. Unseen passages are really scoring and practicing them on regular basis will be very useful. Refer to the unseen passage below with answers.

Read the following passages carefully and answer the questions given below:

But first-just what is an earthquake? And what causes it? In the early history of the earth, when it was cooling down, the rocks deep in the earth's crust created huge islands' which floated on the softer and hotter rocks below rather like wood floats on water. Slowly, these islands drifted apart to make the land-masses we know today as continents. But even now these 'islands' are not stable, and are still drifting very, very slowly. It is these imperceptible movements which create stresses in the rock, many miles below the surface. Ever so often, one of these stresses will break and on the surface the deep underground movement is felt as an earthquake.

There are three large regions in the world where earthquakes are most likely to happen. Scientists call them earthquake zones. The first runs along the east coast of the Asian continent up through Japan, across Alaska, then down the west coast of North America, crossing Mexico and ending somewhere in the Caribbean Sea. The second runs down the west coast of south of South America. The Third runs across the south of Europe and North Africa, through Greece and Turkey and into the middle of Asia.
