Great idea, but the answers are really finnicky. I only got Plymouth, but I knew that it had been overrun by PYROCLASTIC FLOWS HELLO and that the Caribbean plate was involved. Also the volcano has continued to erupt over quite a long period of time, and Caribbean should be accepted for where it's located. The volcano itself is called Soufriere Hills, not Montserrat, and it's probably a better idea to start with a better known volcano, such as Krakatau, Tambora, Laki (Grimsvotn), or Mt. St. Helens.

No I understand, the answers are really specific. My sister used my case study quizzes for revision for her GCSE's. Thank you for the feedback though, it's really appreciated :)
