    The places mention like Tokyo, Anchorage, and Los Angeles lies along the margin of the plates or on the fault line of plates

    While the places like New York, London, or Paris lies far away from these margins

    Explanation:

    The earthquakes are caused due to the movement of the tectonic plates and slipping of the plates.

    The places mention like Tokyo, Anchorage, and Los Angeles lies along the margin of the plates or on the fault line of plates. Thus, the earthquakes are more likely to occur at these places.

    While the places like New York, London, or Paris lies far away from these margins i. e more on the planar region, thus, the earthquakes are not that frequent at theses places.
