A volcano that is unlikely to erupt again is extinct.

If it 'unlikely' to erupt again but it could, it's dormant.

As it is regarded as an extinct volcano, it is unlikely that it will erupt again.

Any volcano classified as extinct.

A volcano can maybe erupt again.

It means that while it might erupt again in the future, at this time it is very unlikely to erupt.

An extinct volcano is one that will never erupt again.

No, a dormant volcano will not erupt again.

An extinct volcano has not had an eruption for at least 10,000 years and is not expected to erupt again in a comparable time scale of the future.This is in contract to a dormant volcano, which is an active volcano that is not erupting, but supposed to erupt again. An active volcano is a volcano that has had at least one eruption during the past 10,000 years. An active volcano might be erupting or dormant.

An extinct volcano has not had an eruption for at least 10,000 years and is not expected to erupt again in a comparable time scale of the future

a volcano that will never erupt again is called an extinct volcano

A volcano with the current potential to erupt is an active volcano.One that has not erupted, and may not erupt again, is dormant.One that could not, or should not ever erupt again, is extinct.

An extinct volcano is a volcano which has not erupted for so long a time that it is generally accepted that it will not erupt ever again. So, although they almost never do, and the answer you're looking for is no, it is possibly (though reallyunlikely) that an extinct volcano may erupt.

active- or live volcano is one that is erupting or has shown signs that it may erupt in the near future dormant- volcano to awaken in the future and become active extinct- or dead volcano is unlikely to erupt again

It depends, a volcano can erupt once and never erupt again. Or, a volcano can erupt multiple times a day.

The volcano is said to be extinct if it hasn't erupted for at least 10,000 years.

A volcanic feature that should not erupt again is called extinct. One that is not expected to erupt is called dormant. A volcano that might erupt again is called active.

A dormant volcano is one that is just sleeping and it is possible to erupt again. An extinct volcano will never erupt again.

Volcanoes can be either active, dormant, or extinct. Dormant would be the closest match to the description "unlikely to erupt".

active : a volcano which is expected to erupt again or will erupt again etna dormant : a volcano which has erupted in the last 2000 years but not recently eg Mt Baker extinct : a volcano which will not erupt again eg killimanjaro

A volcano that has recently erupted and is likely going to erupt again would be called an active volcano. These are very dangerous.

a Volcano that is not active is called an Inactive Volcano.

its called dormant when it colud erupt again and extinct when it cant erupt again.

An "extinct" volcano is not expected to erupt again. However, on rare occasions, "extinct" volcanoes have become active again, sometimes erupting catastrophically.
