For Question 6, P1 First line states that Fracture and Stress and necessary but subsequent line states that sometimes melting causes Earthquake so Fracture is not necessary. Therefore, option one should be right?

OA for question 1 is C. But I cannot seem to bring myself to look at it as the correct option. Can somebody help me understand question 1? I think D should be the correct answer.

DensetsuNo Please if you can help me with this question

Information presented in the passage suggests that, compared with seismic activity at the epicenter of a shallow event, seismic activity at the epicenter of a deep event is characterized by
(A) shorter P-S intervals and higher peak intensity
(B) shorter P-S intervals and lower peak intensity
(C) longer P-S intervals and similar peak intensity
(D) longer P-S intervals and higher peak intensity
(E) longer P-S intervals and lower peak intensity

Although I am down to option C, D, and E, I am unable to make a call on the 'intensity' part. Please if you can explain it with your elegant style.

Most earthquakes had a small area of intense shaking, which weakened rapidly with increasing distance from the epicenter,

This line suggests that when distance from epicenter is more the intensty reduces so OPTION E
