So the specification says "Earthquakes occur at constructive, destructive and conservative plate margins".
I get how earthquakes occur at destructive and conservative boundaries by I didn't think that earthquakes occurred at CONSTRUCTIVE plate boundaries because, to put it crudely, it's just land drifting apart... what is there to rub together?
But this is what is said in the actual specification for AQA, so I guess it should be correct. Can someone please explain?!
(I'm sorry if this is a stupid question)

HI! I've just realised that I made a typo... I meant to say "do earthquales occur at CONSTRUCTIVE plate boundaries?" I'm editing now! Sorry x

You have to bear in mind that the friction from destructive margins, will create shockwaves, that resonate throughout the plate. I hope this helps
