Use the block diagram of a dip-slip fault below to address the following questions (note that the fault is show in bold black, and offsets the layers; the red line is there to show you what vertical is):

What is the strike direction for all of these beds, North-to-South or East-to-West?

Is the block on the right of the diagram the hanging wall or footwall?

Which type of dip-slip fault is this?

Which type of stress causes this fault, tensional, compressional, or shear?

At which plate boundary are these faults most common, divergent, convergent or transform?
