C. Deformation

A

Answer: B. Fault

A gently curved or planar fracture found in the rocks of the earth’s crust is a fault. In simpler terms, a fault is a fracture or a zone of fractures found between two blocks which permits relative movement of the blocks. During an earthquake, the rock located on one side of the fault slips against the other and this causes the repeated displacements over a period of time.
