    Okay, so this type of boundary is known as a "slip boundary" where the two plates don't subduct or create new crust.

    (Think about how mountains and volcanoes form, what type of boundaries do they form on?). A transform bounary will slide against each other, usually in short bursts (think about sliding two rocks together, do you think it would happen smoothly?). Tell me which one you think is correct and I'll tell you if you are right.

    No, mountains are produced when two plates are "squashed" together causing the edges to rise (usually a subduction zone).

    Yeah :) But this is a different fault the plates just slide together - only they don't/can't slide smoothly |dw:1354840190750:dw|

    You don't usually get mountains and volcanoes because the two plates aren't being pushed together, they are sliding sideways. When they slide they usually move in jolts with bursts of energy (The strong bursts of energy is your key clue). Plateaus are flat regions :)

    (psst, A is not correct for the first one, what do bursts of energy produce?) A isn't right for the next one either (sorry!), a divergent plate boundary looks like this: |dw:1354840854135:dw|

    [for the second question] The clue here is that they are islands, so you know that both plates have to be oceanic. Think about your towel, what type of boundary is that (where the plates are being pushed together)? Yep, you're right for the first one :)

    i dont think its b or c because convergent means to get closer

    Nope, not D - remember from the first question that transform boundaries do not produce volcanoes or mountains but strong earthquakes.
