First option is correct: basalt lava is thinner than
Andesit lava because it lies in Oceanic crust, not
thicker
Second option is incorrect: Andesit has about 50 % more silica
than basalt
Third option is incorrect: cindercones made of Andesite or
basalt
Fourth option is incorrect: basalt has more iron and magnesium
because it is more denser
Fifth option is incorrect: basalt is extrusive and Andesit is
intrusive
