How is a river marked on a block diagram?

Not sure what you mean, but...arrows point in direction of flow, bold lines for boundaries, and often colored blue...?

I should have gone into more detain in that question, between strata in a block diagram, rivers are marked with a "V" shape. You were right on that, so I'll give it to you.

All right!

List the three types of unconformities and define them.

Yes, there's also paraconformity in which there is a gap in the geologic timescale, but the strata is still completely parallel.
