Best Answer

Ans: 1. The Indo-Australian plate after getting separated from the Gondwana land drifted slowly towards north. It collided with the much larger Eurasian plate in the northern hemisphere approximately 5 crores of years ago

2. The northern edge of the Indo-Australian plate was pushed beneath the Eurasian plate

3. Under the impact of this collision, the sedimentary rocks of the enclosed ocean were folded to form the mountain system of Central Asia including the Himalayas
