First, I'll ask if you can define each of the types of boundaries listed within your options. After you do this, I can assist.

Yes, I am here. Let's go through what each type of boundary is.

what do you think the answer is?
Whitemonsterbunny17
  • Whitemonsterbunny17
I cannot tell you the answer, that's against OpenStudy's Anti- Cheating Policy. However, I can give you information on each type of boundary, so that you can be sure of the answer yourself. Let's start with the first one: \(\rm\color{lime}{Divergent~Boundary}\) A Divergent Boundary occurs when two plates are moving opposite of each other. Here's a diagram: |dw:1450394538084:dw|

Next: \(\rm\color{cyan}{Transform~Boundary}\) A Transform Boundary occurs when two plates are sliding past each other. Diagram: |dw:1450394734563:dw|

do u have skype
Whitemonsterbunny17
  • Whitemonsterbunny17
Thanks. Also no, I don't have Skype. Now, about the Metamorphic Boundary... there is no such boundary. So we can eliminate that right away.
Whitemonsterbunny17
  • Whitemonsterbunny17
So now, with the diagrams, which one do you believe best fits your question?
nickler38
  • nickler38
ok

a i think
Whitemonsterbunny17
  • Whitemonsterbunny17
Why A?
nickler38
  • nickler38
no i read it probably now i think d
Whitemonsterbunny17
  • Whitemonsterbunny17
I just said we could eliminate that one because such a boundary doesn't exist.
Whitemonsterbunny17
  • Whitemonsterbunny17
Look through the diagrams again.
nickler38
  • nickler38
ok
Whitemonsterbunny17
  • Whitemonsterbunny17
Okay, so your original guess was C. Can you tell me why?
nickler38
  • nickler38
ok

  • nickler38
sry i am really lost i and tired sry for wasting your time
Whitemonsterbunny17
  • Whitemonsterbunny17
No, no. It's okay. You'll get it. (: Let's look through them again. So, in your question, one plate is causing another plate to go beneath it. This is because of the force applied from them coming into each other. So, if the plates are moving toward each other to cause this, which type of boundary would that have to be (look through the diagrams)?
nickler38
  • nickler38
ok ty
nickler38
  • nickler38
now i am ready i will do my best
Whitemonsterbunny17
  • Whitemonsterbunny17
Great! So, which one of those diagrams show two plates moving toward each other?
nickler38
  • nickler38
both
Whitemonsterbunny17
  • Whitemonsterbunny17
Hmm? I gave you three diagrams.
nickler38
  • nickler38
o all of them ok
nickler38
  • nickler38
the last one
Whitemonsterbunny17
  • Whitemonsterbunny17
Yes! That's right! So, which type of boundary does the last diagram show?
nickler38
  • nickler38
to me they loo like there going forward to each other
Whitemonsterbunny17
  • Whitemonsterbunny17
That's right! They're moving toward each other, which means that when they collide, one of them is going to end up below the other. This fits the description of your question. Above that diagram, I told you what type of boundary that is. Could you find that and tell me which boundary that is?

Convergant boundry
Whitemonsterbunny17
  • Whitemonsterbunny17
Yes, that's \(\rm\color{lime}{correct}\)!
