Northeastern Pennsylvania is known for its large supply of coal. Based on this fact, what can you infer about how Northeastern Pennsylvania's land might have looked like millions of years ago?
Is it-
1. The land was likely once near a volcano that deposited the coal on the land after thousands of years of eruptions.
2. The land was likely heavily forested with many smaller plants like ferns.
or
3. The land was likely once under water.

I'm lost and really not sure on how to get the answer, so if you know what it is, can you help me out and explain it? Much appreciated.

  1. Well... I did a google search... and it says "forested". It was forested a long long time ago and thus made coal : )
