Define active volcano.
a) a volcano that has erupted or is going to erupt in the near future. When a volcano is erupting, smok b) a volcano that is believed will never erupt again because there is no lava or magma supply to it. It c) large volcanic forms with broad summit areas and low-sloping sides because the extruded products are d) a volcano that is not active now, but may erupt in the future.
