-It would look like a thin horizontal strip because they are formed by magma that had a high viscosity.-It would look like a depression or a bowl because the laccolith below is a sheet-like structure of a centimeter up to a kilometer in thickness.-It would look like an elevation or dome because the laccolith below is a lens-shaped mass of magma that pushes the rock above it upward.<
