On page 16 in our text book there are great diagrams explaining the divergant boundry, the convergent boundry, and the transform boundry. I am not sure what you mean by four types. If what you mean is the different convergent boundries, there is another diagram on page 17 which shows the subduction of an oceanic plate and a continental plate. The difference in the contintent to contintent collision vs the oceanic to continent is the lack of subduction. This occurs because the continental crust is not dense enough to be subducted. I hope the diagrams on this page are helpful. :)
