I'm in the process of scanning the paper, I'll link it here once I'm done...although there aren't many EES people out there :p I'll also eventually upload all my assignments...

And so far my multiple choice answers were:
1-A
2-C
3-A (not sure...none of the answers actually fitted the question well)
4-B
5-B
6-D
7-D
8-D
9-C
10-B
11-D
12-B
13-C
14-D (err this one took me a while and is quite possibly wrong)
15-C

I got the same answers as you, but for 7 I put C; 14 I put A and 15 I put A.
I found the multiple choice section confusing in parts. And I don't have the best record for it, in the trial I got 8/15. :(
I found question 14 really confusing, and I ruled out every answer at one stage. ;) Other people from my class put C and D though.

these are the answers i put:
1.A
2.C
3.A
4.B
5.B
6.D (UV radiation doesnt melt ice, thats greenhouse gases = global warming)
7.A (because the material around it cud say it was a volcanic eruption)
8.D
9.A (because between goin from sea to land they cud hav gone in swamps)
10.B
11.D
12.A (answer is B is knew it was one of the 2 lol)
13.C
14.A (D is wrong as increase CO2 doesnt follow increase temp its the other way round, increase temps follow an increase in CO2 - badly worded question)
15.A

1- A (easy start)
2 -A (u all got c but im 99% sure its a cause 1- it has a trench in the middle which is in keepin wit a divergent boundary, and basalt is oceanic crust, andesite which u guys had is ocean continent collisions - andes mountains.....) (tell me im wrong if ya wanna)
3 - A (pretty straight forward)
4 - B (no commentry available)
5 - B
6 - D

13 - C
14 - A

For question 2 I'm quite sure that it's C dawso. :)
At oceanic-oceanic convergent boundaries you get island arc volcanics, like Japan, and its main rock type is andesite. We were taught that the South American rock types are rhyolite and granite. And for the oceanic-oceanic there would still be a trench because of the subduction of the oceanic crust.

My explanation for question 7: I put C because they told us that it had gills, eyes, limbs and a shell. I've never heard of an ostracode before, but I figured that those features might be different to earlier ones. A volcanic eruption in the UK wouldn't necessarily have meant extinction, and one fossil doesn't show geographical distribution. D...I didn't really understand what it was hinting at, it does tell us that it lived in the sea but I didn't connect that with the chemical environment part, oops.


And according to my time scale, for question 9 the answer would be C - trilobites and brachiopods have shells. The first terrestrial plants were in the Ordovician.

Would anyone like to clarify the answers for questions 5 and 8? I guessed those.

Yeah that's true about the Andes. But andesite is definitely the main rock type for island arc volcanics. I'm not trying to argue though.

Don't worry Egghead, I keep thinking of tons of stupid things that I wrote. I hope I get marks for them. :(
