Q5: A glacier on its way down the valley leaves behind circular hollow in the heads of the valleys, lakes of this type are called
Q6: These are depression in the outwash plain left by the melting of masses of stagnant ice.

Q11: The areas of high volcanic activity are of
ocean - ocean convergence
ocean continent convergence
both a and b
Q12: ocean - ocean divergence which creates
peaceful basaltic eruptions
mid ocean ridges
both a and b
Q13: Intrusive land - forms
Sills - Horizontal
Dykes - vertical
Laccoliths – magma which couldn’t come out
Q14: Intrusive land - forms
Balolith – intrusive granite rock
Phacolith – shaped like waves
Lopolith – saucer shaped.

Re emergence of old fractures.
Human induced due to Mining, building of dams.
Q24: Which is true ?
The vessels in the ocean don’t feel the tsunami. Waves also have higher speed.
