Compare and contrast folded mountains to volcanic mountains. How they are alike? How they are different?

i got some of it..

Similarities:
Both were probably formed from convergent plate boundaries.


Difference:
Volcanic Mountains - are mountains that form when molten rock erupts onto the Earth's surface. They can either form on land or in the ocean. whereas Fold mountains are mountains formed mainly by the effects of folding on layers within the upper part of the Earth's crust.

    You must not have read very far.

    "Movements of tectonic plates create volcanoes along the plate boundaries which erupt and form mountains."

    Now read the first paragraph under fold mountains.

    ok
    if u wish i will read it again

  • geography -

    i found 1 more difference;
    Volcanoes are created by debris from their own eruptions but fold mountains are formed by slow motion collisions of earth's plates
