Answer:

The convection current meet head on. This will cause the currents to force the plates they are carry upwards while the currents go down.

Explanation:

Diverging boundaries are where the convection currents move upwards.

Converging boundaries are where convention current move downward.

When a ocean plate meets a continental plate in a convergent boundary the mantle current carrying the ocean plate is forced downward.
