D. Atmospheric pressure places a positive force on the formation of crust.Answer 2
They do? It might? Jeez , who knew? The lithosphere is usually considered to be the upper regions of the crust , i.e. the outer few dozen miles of a planet. So, first, I don't know how any lithosphere could be considered "strong" or "thick", and second,
--a more dense lithosphere might be implied by, but not imply, a higher reflectivity. It's a stretch, but maybe.
--how a greenhouse effect would be predicted by a more dense lithosphere I can't imagine.
--distance from the sun? don't know what that has to do with anything.
--higher atm press? nope.
Now, "atmosphere"...ahhhhhhh, that's another ball o' wax altogether.
