    Answer:

    Hotspots from under the ground

    Explanation:

    There are three different situations where an volcano can form. A divergent boundary, where two tectonic plates move away from each other, subduction boundary, where one of the tectonic plates moves under the other, and a hotspot. Scientists are not completely sure how hotspots form.
