Question:

Are fault block mountains formed by the folding of rock layers caused by compression forces?

A fault block mountain is formed when a block (or blocks) of rocks between two normal faults is pushed up. If the rocks become extremely hot during compression, they are more likely to fold than to fault. AnswerParty!!!
