The Ring of Fire runs from Alaska, along the west coast of North and South America, to the southern tip of Chile. The ring also runs down the east coast of Asia. Starting in the far north, it passes through Russia, Japan, the Philippines, and New Guinea. It continues down past Australia. Some of the most destructive volcanic eruptions ever recorded have occurred along the Ring of Fire.

According to the passage, where would a destructive volcanic eruption be most likely to happen?

Anywhere along the Ring of Fire


The article states that the Ring of Fire runs along the west coast of both North and South America and that it runs down the east coast of Asia, so these choices only are incorrect.
