Solution

The Earth can physically be described as a ball of rock (the lithosphere), partly covered by water (the hydrosphere) and wrapped in an envelope of air (the atmosphere). To these three physical zones, it is convenient to add a biological zone that includes all the living organisms (the biosphere). This is the description given by Arthur Holmes about the Earth.

Concept: Introduction of Lithosphere – I Endogenetic Processes
