Give scientific reasons.

The foundation of earthquake-proof building is separated from other land.


Note: The question language is not comprehensible. It seems like the question is about giving reasons why the foundation of earthquake building is seperated from the ground
A seismic wave absorber layer is laid between the ground and the foundation of earthquake resistant building. This layer absorbs the pressure exerted by the earthquake tremors on the side walls of the building. Due to this, the building does not shake with the same intensity as the earth is shaking. Thus, the foundation of earthquake building is separated from the ground so that it can withstand the high pressure (load) exerted by the seismic waves on its sidewalls.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
