Western ghat and Paleozoic fold, are the two pairs that are not correctly matched. Western Ghats (also known as Sahyadri, meaning The Benevolent Mountains) is a mountain range that runs parallel to the western coast of the Indian peninsula, located entirely in India.

The range starts near the border of Gujarat and Maharashtra, south of the Tapti River, and runs approximately 1,600 k. Fold Mountains are mountains that form mainly by the effects of folding on layers within the upper part of the Earth's crust. Before either plate tectonic theory developed, or the internal architecture of thrust belts became well understood, the term was used for most mountain belts, such as the Himalayas.
