Why does earthquake happen?

The upper surface of the Earth is made up of tectonic plates. Wherever these plates collide with each other, there is a danger of earthquake. An earthquake occurs when these plates try to penetrate each other’s area. When the plates rub against each other, immense energy is released from it. Due to that friction or friction, the earth above starts to shake, sometimes the earth bursts. Sometimes for weeks, sometimes for many months, this energy comes out continuously and due to this earthquakes occur.
