Question and answer
Match each boundary with its description 1. convergent This plate boundary usually forms mountains due to colliding plates. 2. divergent This plate boundary can cause earthquakes from plates
rubbing along side each other. 3. transform This plate boundary creates new land, like the seafloor at the mid-atlantic ridge.
A convergent boundary also known as a destructive plate boundary (because of subduction), is an actively deforming region where two (or more) tectonic plates or fragments of lithosphere move toward one another and collide.
