1) Continental plates are much thicker that Oceanic plates. At the convergent boundaries the continental plates are pushed upward and gain thickness. The rocks and geological layers are much older on continental plates than in the oceanic plates. The Continental plates are much less dense than the Oceanic plates.

2) Continental drift describes one of the earliest ways geologists thought continents moved over time. ... In the early 20th century, Wegener published a paper explaining his theory that the continental landmasses were “drifting” across the Earth, sometimes plowing through oceans and into each other.

3) I know that In plate tectonics, a divergent boundary or divergent plate boundary is a linear feature that exists between two tectonic plates that are moving away from each other. Divergent boundaries within continents initially produce rifts, which eventually become rift valleys

4) Because of this, the crust is made of the lightest materials (rock- basalts and granites) and the core consists of heavy metals (nickel and iron). The crust is the layer that you live on, and it is the most widely studied and understood. The mantle is much hotter and has the ability to flow.

5) Pakistan is split along the boundary between the Eurasian and Indian plates where the India plate slides northward relative to the Eurasia plate in the east. The Eruasia Plate is also being shoved by the Arabia plate as it subducts northward beneath the Eurasia plate along the boundary south of a map
