    Default Soil vs earth

    In the following exercise, I'm supposed to choose the correct option:
    "What do scientists mean by soil/earth erosion and what causes it?"
    The answer key gives "soil" as the correct answer, but I seem to be having some problems to see the difference between these two, particularly in this context, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
