You've got to be kidding me. A volcano that erupts often is called a cinder cone volcano, a volcano that does not erupt at all is called a shield volcano, and a volcano that can erupt but doesn't is a composite volcano. Here is the chart.

Cinder cone: eruption

Shield: dead

Composite: sleep

Hope you use my answer wisely.
