  • you'd prob have ti explain colliding and all that jazz? been nearly 10 years since i did LC geography. i think this question would give you ample opportunity to explain the nature of plate tectonics, and the different plates?

    Perhaps start off and explain what folding is, this will show you know what the question is asking of you (you can say that folding takes place below the brittle - ductile transitional zone, don't know if thats going into too detailed, I studied geology!). Then go onto explain the 3 different types of plate boundaries, list them and explain what's going on at each one(divergent, convergent and transform boundaries), important to say that converging plate boundaries leads to mountain building events (even better if you can give an example and list some actual plates that are colliding!). Some quick sketches can help illustrate the points you make.

    Hope this is of some help!
