    Loorechrissy, it does appear that you have done very little reading, if any of your course material. I am reluctant to help someone out who is relying on others rather than their own efforts. However, you have been polite in your requests and thanked each instance of help, so against my better judgement.

    1. this is obviously sorting.

    3. Tricky one. Could be lath, but I suspect not.

    And, while I am at it, how the hell could lava be a "rate of cooling"?

    To ophiolite, thank you so much in helping me out (and to everyone else). I appreciate it. There's is about 35 questions in each crossword puzzle. I don't have a textbook, just a couple of handouts that aren't very helpful. So I have to Google everything. I really am trying to do these on my own but there are just a couple I get stuck on. Once again thank you soo much to everyone for being helpful to me.
