How do you classify rocks?

Rocks are classified into three categories on the basis of their mode of formation. They are: 

  • Igneous Rocks — solidified from magma and lava; 
  • Sedimentary Rocks — the result of deposition of fragments of rocks by exogenous processes; 
  • Metamorphic Rocks — formed out of existing rocks undergoing recrystallisation.
