      In cold climates

    • B.

      In groups

    • C.

      In permanent dwellings

    • D.

      Without a spoken language

    Correct Answer
    C. In permanent dwellings
    Explanation
    The hunter-gatherer way of life, which involved constantly moving in search of food, made it impossible for people to live in permanent dwellings. Since they relied on hunting and gathering resources from the environment, they needed to be flexible and adapt to different locations. Building permanent dwellings would have limited their mobility and ability to follow food sources. Therefore, the hunter-gatherer lifestyle was not conducive to settling down in one place and constructing permanent dwellings.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is food surplus, specializations, trade, and domestication. Agricultural villages allowed for a more stable and secure lifestyle, leading to an increase in food production. This surplus of food enabled the development of specialized roles within the community, as not everyone needed to be directly involved in food production. With surplus food and specialized roles, trade became possible between villages, allowing for the exchange of goods and resources. Additionally, the establishment of agricultural villages led to the domestication of plants and animals, further contributing to a safer and more settled way of life.

    Which of the following had a spoken language, 100 specialized tools, and used artistic expression?

    • A.

      Neanderthals

    • B.

      Cro-magnons

    • C.

      All hominids

    • D.

      Lucy

    Correct Answer
    B. Cro-magnons
    Explanation
    Cro-Magnons had a spoken language, 100 specialized tools, and used artistic expression. This is because Cro-Magnons were early modern humans who lived in Europe between 40,000 and 10,000 years ago. They were known for their advanced cognitive abilities, including the development of language, as evidenced by cave paintings and other forms of artistic expression. They also created and used a wide variety of specialized tools, indicating their advanced technological skills. Neanderthals and Lucy (referring to the Australopithecus afarensis fossil) did not possess all of these characteristics, and "all hominids" is too broad of a category to accurately describe the specific traits mentioned.

      Folk tales

    • D.

      Scientific clues

    Correct Answer
    D. Scientific clues
    Explanation
    To learn about prehistory, scientific clues must be used. This is because prehistory refers to the time period before written records were kept, so ancient texts and stone tablets are not available sources of information. Folk tales, although they may contain some elements of truth, are often based on myths and legends rather than historical facts. Therefore, scientific clues, such as archaeological artifacts, fossil remains, and geological evidence, provide the most reliable and accurate insights into prehistoric times.

      Neanderthals

    • B.

      Cro-Magnons

    • C.

      Hominids

    • D.

      Vikings

    Correct Answer
    A. Neanderthals
    Explanation
    DNA testing has proven that Neanderthals are NOT our ancestors. This is because Neanderthals were a distinct species that coexisted with early humans, but they did not contribute significantly to the genetic makeup of modern humans. While there is some evidence of interbreeding between Neanderthals and humans, the genetic contribution from Neanderthals to modern humans is relatively small. Therefore, DNA testing has conclusively shown that Neanderthals are not direct ancestors of modern humans.
