It is really a dangerous world we live in, with more than one thousand earthquakes of a magnitude of 2 or less every day. It might surprise and shock most people to learn that almost one million earthquakes occur each year. Yet this is exactly the case. The reason why most people do not know it is that most of the earthquakes are too subtle to notice. (6) It was only in 1935 that a numerical logarithmic scale was developed to measure the amplitude of the largest trace recorded by a standard seismograph one hundred kilometers from the epicenter of an earthquake. The scale was introduced by American seismologist Charles R. Richter, and the scale was named after him. (11) The scale is based on a relatively simple principle. Each number on the scale represents an earthquake ten times as strong as one of the next lower magnitude. For example, an earthquake of magnitude 4 is ten times as strong as that of magnitude 3. (16) According to the Richter scale, an earthquake of magnitude 2 may be felt with no damage whereas one of 5 may be liable to cause considerable local damage. The really frightening ones are those of magnitude 7 and upper considered major earthquakes, which are responsible for great devastation and great numbers of deaths. Luckily, one thousand earthquakes that shake the world every single day are smaller than those of magnitude 2 and pass undetected. So, literally, as well as metaphorically, it is a shaking world under our feet.   Mark the best choice     1. The word that in line (Line 11) refers to __________.
