    Explanation

      File for a deed

    • D.

      All of these

    Correct Answer
    C. File for a deed
    Explanation
    The last procedure in this sequence is to file for a deed. This is because filing for a deed is typically the final step in the process of acquiring ownership of a property. Before filing for a deed, one would need to file an application and improve the land, but these steps would usually precede the final step of filing for a deed. Therefore, "file for a deed" is the correct answer as the last procedure.

    Correct Answer
    B. Improve the land
    Explanation
    The next procedure to acquire the land is to improve the land. This suggests that before acquiring the land, it needs to be developed or enhanced in some way. This could involve activities such as clearing the land, leveling the ground, making infrastructure improvements, or any other steps necessary to make the land suitable for its intended use. Once the land has been improved, it can then be acquired for the desired purpose.

    A. File an application
    Explanation
    The first step in acquiring land is to file an application. This is because before any other actions can be taken, such as improving the land or filing for a deed, the interested party must first submit an application to the appropriate authority or organization. This application typically includes information about the intended use of the land and any relevant documentation or fees. Once the application is approved, further steps can be taken to acquire the land, such as improving it or filing for a deed.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is a confederate. A confederate refers to someone who was part of the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War.
