Thank you for your question!
The four spheres of the Earth that you mention are distinguishable by their characteristics and the aspects of the Earth that they include:
• The biosphere includes all living things on Earth, whether they are animals, plants, or microorganisms
• The hydrosphere includes all the water present on Earth, in solid, liquid, and gaseous form
• The lithosphere includes the Earth's crust and the upper part of the mantle, therefore, mainly rocks and minerals
• The atmosphere includes the layer of gas that surrounds the Earth
I hope it helps. Do not hesitate if you have other questions!
