    What is difference between Basic Lavas and Acid Lavas ? What are various landforms made due to Lava flow ? ( 200 Words 12.5 marks) ?

    Acidic Lava - More silica content, More Viscous
    Basic Lava - Less silica, more of Fe, Mg etc. , Less viscosity, so flows easily

    Landforms due to Lava Flow - I guess give more emphasis on landforms created by Basic lava such as

    1. Lava Shields/plateus
    2. Lava plains
    3. Sub surface features such as Batholiths, Laccoliths, Sills, dykes, cuestas
