Solution

Extinct conical volcanoes often form crater lakes because - 

  1. An extinct volcano had no volcanic eruption for at least 10,000 years and is not expected to erupt again in the future.
  2. After the eruption, a large and deep depression remains in that area. Smaller depressions are called craters.
  3. This crater eventually gets filled with water and crater lakes are formed. 
  4. The water may come from precipitation, groundwater circulation, or melted ice.
Concept: Volcanoes
