Ans-a) Hawaiian islands were formed
due to Hawaiian Hot spot. The location
of hot spot is fixed, however the tectonic
plate (Pacific plate in this case) moves
over it. This results in formation of
islands. Since the plate is moving in the
northwest direction, the islands are
older as one moves in the northwest
direction.
