    Similar rocks found on different continents, Mountains created by colliding continents, Evidence of glaciers in unexpected places are the evidences to support the idea that all the continents were once joined together.

    Option D, All the above.

    Explanation:

    Earth did not have seven continents but only one, nearly 300 million years ago. There was one "massive super continent", called the Pangaea. The Pangaea was also surrounded by the ocean named panthalassa. Experts say that the formation of the seven continents happened due to the movement in the tectonic plates.

    Similar kinds of rocks were found on different continents, it is also believed that the Aps were formed due to the separation of continents, coal deposits of the same constituents were also found on different continents.
