Why do earthquakes occur?
There are seven plates roaming inside the earth. Where there is a collision of these plates, it is called fault line zone. Due to their collision, the corners of the plates start to turn, due to which the pressure starts to build. This causes the plates to break and the energy exiting from them looks for a way to get out. When this energy goes out, it causes earthquakes.
