    The correct answer is - The landmass of Pangaea split into separate continents over time.

    Pangaea was a super-continent, made out of all the continents that we know nowadays, as one big landmass. But as it came to be, it also split apart, and the cause for that were the movements of the tectonic plates. The tectonic plates started to move away from one another, and at the beginning, it resulted in dividing Pangaea in two parts, Laurasia and Gondwanaland. But as the time was passing, from the two parts, more and more parts were separating, so from Laurasia emerged North America and Eurasia, and from Gondwanaland it was South America, Africa, Australia, Antarctica, and India that split off.
