Granite forms when liquid magma slowly cools within Earth's crust. If the granite is exposed to intense heat and pressure, it can change to gneiss. Which type of change takes place when granite turns into gneiss?
  1. Sedimentary rock changes into igneous rock.
  2. Igneous rock changes into metamorphic rock.
  3. Metamorphic rock changes into igneous rock.
  4. Sedimentary rock changes into metamorphic rock.
