Your images did not show up. Please repost them one or two at a time. Use the first icon, in the bottom tool bar, counting six boxes from left to right. Looks like a rectangle with a silhouette of the sun and two mountains. Thanks.

Schist is a metamorphic rock defined by its texture, not the parent rock. You are probably expected to answer that it is also a metamorphosed shale/mudstone. However, in reality, schist can be formed form almost any starting rock Dissertation Hub under relatively high-grade metamorphic conditions if there is a large amount of deformation
