Why do earthquakes happen?
The real reason for the shaking of the earth is the collision of the plates inside the earth. There are seven plates inside the earth which keep on rotating continuously. When these plates collide with each other at some place, then the fault line zone is formed and the corners of the plate are folded. On the other hand, when the corners of the table are bent, due to its pressure, the plates start breaking. Due to the breaking of these plates, the energy inside sees the way to come out and when the energy comes out then the earth shakes. This is called earthquake.
