<SNIP> one question that asked how far away a fault line was based off a graph. We threw in random numbers for those ones.
<SNIP> Plus, what kind of graph did you get for the fault line question?

why did you throw in random numbers?

One of the questions related to the fault graph required a distance value. We hadn't a clue how to answer it, so we just threw a possible number down for the answer. We had near zero chance of hitting the right number, but I can't stand leaving answers blank on a SO test.

i thought the test was easy and the graph was depth of earthquake vs distance from observer, so its basically the angle of the fault
i got 2nd overall, i was pretty surprised haha

That's pretty good, I guess. It really depends on whether it was regionals, states, or nationals. In regionals, that place is okay, in states it's good, depending on which state, and in nationals it's phenomenal. Still, whichever one it was, good job. :)
