Why do earthquakes happen?

Explain that the earth is made up of four layers, namely the inner core, outer core, mantle, and crustal core. The crust and core of the upper mantle are called lithosphere. This 50 km thick layer is divided into several sections. These are called tectonic plates. These tectonic plates continue to move in their place. When this plate begins to move a lot, it is called an earthquake. These plates can move their positions both horizontally and vertically.
