Personally i would choose divergant because the only thing that could happen to your house was if it moved less than an inch to the right every year
Many geologists believe that the mantle ¨flows¨ because of convection currents. Convection currents are caused by the very hot material at the deepest part of the mantle rising, then cooling, sinking again and then heating, rising and repeating the cycle over and over. ¨The next time you heat anything like soup or pudding in a pan you can watch the convection currents move in the liquid. When the convection currents flow in the mantle they also move the crust. The crust gets a free ride with these currents. A conveyor belt in a factory moves boxess like the convection currents in the mantle moves the plates of the Earth.¨
What the currents make are depended on the type of plate it is. If you had convergent w/ subduction (Ocean) it would create trenches like the iceland arks and the marina trench. But is it was (land) it would create under water volcanos and mts. its diffrent because the water is very heavy and pushes down more if there is more water.

Alfred Wegener was the scientist who championed the Continental Drift Theory through the first few decades of the twentieth century. Simply put, his hypothesis proposed that the continents had once been joined, and over time had drifted apart. The jigsaw fit that the continents make with each other can be seen by looking at any world map.
