Question
HOW DOES GRANITE TURN INTO SEDIMENTARY AND METAMORPHIC ROCKS

Answer
Dear Adam, Goodmorning and Fraternal Greetings

Granite will become Sedimentary rock by the process of Rock cycle which involves

weathering, transportation and deposition. these three processes are mainly responsible for the formation of sedimentary rocks.

Sedimentary rocks in turn will become Metamorphic rocks by the process of metamorphism which involves high temperature and pressure and also some chemically active fluids.

I hope you are clear with this

with regards

yours sincerely
