  3. I think they're all right, but it's difficult to read this way.

    I'll check it again if you copy the paragraph and insert the correct word in each space. One way to do this is to capitalize the vocabulary words you put in.

  4. Weathering is the breaking of rocks into PIECES. There are two types of weathering. MECHANICAL weathering involves breaking rocks without changing their chemical composition.In CRACKS, water trapped in rocks freezes and expands, forcing the rocks apart. PLANTS can also cause mechanical weathering. As their roots grow and put pressure on rocks,FREEZING widen and rock fragments may fall off. CHEMICAL weathering involves water, air, and other substances'REACTING with the minerals in the rocks. When metal is exposed to water and oxygen, ACIDS occurs and rust forms.OXIDATION in plant rots and mosses can also react with the MINERALS in rocks.Water and carbon dioxide combine to form CARBONIC ACID, which reacts to minerals such as calcite in limestone. How rapidly weathering occurs in the area depends on the MOISTURE. Chemical weathering happens more often in DESERT areas due to lack of CLIMATE. Low TEMPERATURE in polar regions keep chemical weathering to a minimum there. Whenever ICE WEDGING and thawing alternate, mechanical weathering becomes an important form of weathering.
