1. 
Stress along faults is measured by movement of the earth's crust in the vicinity.
  1. True
  2. False
 
2. 
Strain is a measure of how much force is placed on a fault.
  1. True
  2. False
3. 
Faults are classified by their
  1. angle of faulting and displacement distance
  2. formation depth and direction of movement
  3. direction of movement and angle of faulting
