Final Answer :
Explanation :
All of these factors contribute to the high death tolls in major recent earthquakes. Poorly built structures are more likely to collapse, tsunamis can cause widespread damage and loss of life, and earthquakes that occur near areas with high population densities can affect more people directly.
