    Answer: (1) Epicenter

    The place in the crust where the earthquake waves start is called Epicenter. The earthquake is a result of the natural movement of earth. The earthquake starts when two or more tectonic plates moves again each other. A planet’s surface is covered with at least twenty tectonic plates.

    Epicenter is a point on the earth directly above the hypo center of the earthquake.
