If you placed a dot on a world map to represent the location of every earthquake in the last 100 years, where would you see earthquake activity most concentrated? Why is this so?

You would see the most earthquake activity along the tectonic plate boundaries. This occurs because at these boundaries, the plates grind and push one another, stressing the rocks. Eventually the stress builds to a point where it gets released as an earthquake.
