for this question:

Put the folloing words together in a few sentence to explain their meaning and relationship to one another: seismic waves, seismograms, seismoghaps, and seismologists.


is this answer suitable:

Seismic wave is an elastic shock wave that travels through the earth, as from an earthquake or explosion; also, one of four distinct waves generated by an earthquake. so seismogram is an instrument which detects and records the intensity, direction, and duration of a movement of the ground, especially when there is an earthquake. and seismogram is the record of an earth tremor made by the seismograph. and seismology is the science or study of wearthquakes and thier phenomena.

plz help ...and thanks

    You've found good definitions. Now, make a few changes to put them into better sentences.

    For instance, your first sentence should end after explosion. The next sentence could begin "It is also one of four . . ."

    Sentences usually should not begin with so or and.
