Quiz: Types Of Plate Boundaries And Earth

This quiz is on the Types of Plate Boundaries and Earth's Interior Layers. There is a theory that suggests that there are seven major and many minor plates in the lithosphere which move against the earth's mantle. Take up the quiz and get to see just how well you understand what lies below the earth's outer surface. All the best!
