How do ground conditions affect earthquake damage to buildings?

Dear student,           
​Please find below the solution to the asked query  

​Ground conditions such as loose soil, soft ground etc. affect the damage caused by an earthquake. The amplitude of seismic waves through such grounds is high. Hence, an earthquake will cause a great damage to a building built on a soft ground. Such ground undergo a process of liquefaction during earthquake which makes them to behave as liquids. 

Buildings constructed on granite (hard rock mass) are less likely to collapse than those build on soft ground.
