Answer

The correct options are:

  • A. It leads to the destruction of property.
  • D. It is dangerous for human lives.

Sudden or rapid mass movements are both dangerous and destructive. They can cause significant loss of property and, in some cases, human lives. Humans have been continuously seeking methods to either prevent these events or at least mitigate their impact.

Additionally, oxidation refers to a chemical weathering process, while the peeling away of the external rock surface is a physical weathering process known as exfoliation.
