Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

1. Deccan Traps Volcanic activity

2. Meteorite impact

Explanation:

1. Sulfurous volcanic gases that were released during  Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event, resulted in the fall of global temperature for about 2°C / 35.6°F, which had a detrimental effect for many life forms.

2. Meteorite or asteroid that was about 11-81 km in diameter resulted in a mega-tsunami over 100 meters high and created crater 150 km in diameter.

The blast from the meteorite, ejected pieces back to the atmosphere where they would have been heated when re-entering - broiling earth and causing wildfires. Leftover dust covered the earth for several years, causing the greenhouse effect and killing majority of plants that relied on photosynthesis to survive.

A study of 7,578 adults in seven nations found that physical separation between parents and adult children _____. weakened family ties created conflict between parents and the adult children strengthened the relationships between parents and adult children caused parents to spend more time and resources supporting adult children

Answers

Answer:

Strengthened the relationships between parents and their adult children.

Explanation:

To have a healthy parent-child relationship independence is the most important. Therefore, it's only logical that the separation would improve the bond. Altough it's not just being away (communication plays a large role) being away from your parents and living your own life is very important as long as they don't interrupt abruptily and try to have honest communication. That's why distance helps.
