a. There are two specimens of sedimentary rocks in your Practical Kit – Specimens 2 and 3. Complete a copy of Table 1 by
listing four characteristics that differ between these rock specimens (ignoring the fact that one has been polished). You
should also summarise your observations of these characteristics for each rock and then explain how each of the differences
you have observed relates to the geological processes that formed the rocks. (Guideline: Your entries in the ‘Observations’
column should be just a few words, but entries in the ‘Explanation of difference’ column should be one or two sentences
b. All of the rock specimens in the Practical Kit (Specimens 2 to 6) are representative of the types of rocks found on the Earth’s
surface, or just below its surface (accessed via deep mines or via boreholes). A reasonable assumption is that these types of
rocks are found all the way to the centre of the Earth. However, several lines of evidence indicate that this assumption is not
true. Using information in Book 2, describe four observations that indicate the Earth’s interior is made of materials that differ
from the types of rock found at, or just below, the Earth’s surface. (Guideline: up to 200 words in total.)
