The correct answer is b. Atlantic Ocean.The ocean that lies between the land masses of the continents of North America and South America on its western side and Europe and Africa on its eastern side, is the Atlantic Ocean. This ocean ranks as the second largest on the planet, and is divided into two parts, the North Atlantic Ocean, between North America and Europe, and in the South Atlantic Ocean, between South America and Africa.The Atlantic Ocean has been formed due to the opening of the space between the continental masses due to the movement of the tectonic plates. Namely, the combination of North America and Europe, on the one hand, and South America and Africa, on the other hand, began to divide, such as North America and South America began to move toward the west, making each time more space between them and the European and African land masses, which was filled with water and eventually became the Atlantic Ocean as we now know it.
