    Explanation
    A political map is a type of map that displays only countries, national borders, and cities. It is designed to provide information about the political boundaries and major urban areas of a region or the entire world. This map does not include topographic features like mountains or rivers, nor does it provide information about specific themes or topics. Therefore, a political map is the most appropriate choice for displaying only countries, national borders, and cities.

      Climate map

    • D.

      Road map

    Correct Answer
    D. Road map
    Explanation
    A road map is the most used map because it provides detailed information about roads, highways, and transportation routes. It helps people navigate and plan their journeys, whether for commuting, traveling, or finding specific locations. Road maps are widely used by drivers, tourists, and transportation companies to determine the best routes, estimate travel times, and locate points of interest along the way. They are essential for efficient and accurate navigation, making them the most commonly used type of map.

  • 5. 

    Which one of these is not shown on a physical map? 

    • A.

      Rivers

    • B.

      Mountains

    • C.

      Landmarks

    • D.

      Lakes

    Correct Answer
    C. Landmarks
    Explanation
    A physical map typically displays natural features of the Earth's surface, such as rivers, mountains, and lakes. Landmarks, on the other hand, refer to man-made structures or points of interest. Since physical maps focus on natural features, landmarks are not shown on them.

  • 6. 

    What map type can help you learn geography by drawing on them by yourself? 

    • A.

      Physical map

    • B.

      Historical map

    • C.

      Political map

    • D.

      Blank & outline map

    Correct Answer
    D. Blank & outline map
    Explanation
    A blank & outline map is the correct answer because it allows you to draw on the map yourself. This type of map provides a basic outline of geographic features and boundaries, but does not include any pre-drawn details such as physical or political features. By drawing on a blank & outline map, you can actively engage in learning geography by labeling and marking different locations, landmarks, and other relevant information. This hands-on approach helps in developing a better understanding and memory of geographical concepts.

  • 7. 

    What's not shown on a world map? 

    • A.

      Continents

    • B.

      Oceans

    • C.

      Countries

    • D.

      Moon

    Correct Answer
    D. Moon
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Moon. A world map typically shows continents, oceans, and countries, but it does not show celestial bodies such as the Moon. World maps focus on the Earth's surface and its features, excluding objects that are not part of the planet itself. Therefore, the Moon, being a natural satellite of the Earth, is not shown on a world map.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which one of these doesn't exist, geographically speaking? 

    • A.

      Map with animal species

    • B.

      Map with plants

    • C.

      Map with Hollywood stars

    • D.

      Map with roads

    Correct Answer
    C. Map with Hollywood stars
    Explanation
    A map with Hollywood stars does not exist geographically speaking because Hollywood stars are not physical entities that can be located on a map. Hollywood stars refer to famous actors and actresses who work in the film industry, and their presence is not tied to a specific geographical location. Therefore, it is not possible to create a map that shows the distribution or location of Hollywood stars.
