4) What is the significance between the granite, pegmatite, and the underlying schist?

5) There are grooves parallel to the layers and grooves perpendicular to bedding. What processes caused both sets of grooves? a. Could the perpendicular grooves be due to differential erosion of the layering in the rock? b. Did the grooves form before or after the folding of the rock layering?

6) What types of rock are Manhattan Schist, Hartland schist, and Umpire Rock? Also, how did they get there?
