Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is a reason MEDCs set up factories in LEDCs?

    • A.

      To maximise their profits

    • B.

      To help Less Economically developed countries compete with MEDCs

    • C.

      To create more jobs

    Correct Answer
    A. To maximise their profits
    Explanation
    MEDCs (More Economically Developed Countries) set up factories in LEDCs (Less Economically Developed Countries) to maximize their profits. By establishing factories in LEDCs, MEDCs can take advantage of lower labor and production costs, allowing them to increase their profit margins. Additionally, setting up factories in LEDCs can also help MEDCs access new markets and expand their customer base. This strategy allows MEDCs to tap into the resources and potential of LEDCs while benefiting their own economies.

      The greed of LEDCs that causes many of their citizens to live in poverty.

      Every MEDC citizen is obligated to help every LEDC citizen.

    Correct Answer
    C. Unfair for MEDCs to impose trade restrictions that prevent LEDCs from selling high-value processed goods to MEDCs.
    Explanation
    Many Christians believe that it is unfair for MEDCs to impose trade restrictions that prevent LEDCs from selling high-value processed goods to MEDCs. This belief is rooted in the principle of fairness and justice, as it recognizes the importance of equal economic opportunities for all nations. Imposing trade restrictions hinders the economic growth and development of LEDCs, perpetuating poverty and inequality. Christians believe in the value of compassion and helping others, and by advocating against trade restrictions, they aim to promote a more just and equitable global economic system.

    • D.

      Christians should be prepared to take any job rather than be unemployed.

    Correct Answer
    D. Christians should be prepared to take any job rather than be unemployed.
    Explanation
    Christians believe that work is a means to fulfill one's responsibilities and contribute to society. They value the dignity of work and believe that it is important to be productive members of society. Therefore, Christians would strongly disagree with the claim that they should only take jobs that align with their moral values. They believe that it is better to be employed and fulfill their responsibilities rather than being unemployed and dependent on others.

Natural disasters and disease can destroy infrastructure and disrupt economies, further impoverishing communities. War and conflict also have devastating effects on economies and societies. Overpopulation can strain resources and lead to poverty. Lack of education limits opportunities for individuals to escape poverty. Overall, these factors highlight the complex and interconnected nature of poverty in LEDCs.

This suggests that Christians believe in the importance of ensuring affordable access to medication for people in less economically developed countries. By advocating for cheaper drugs, they aim to address the issue of healthcare inequality and improve the health outcomes of individuals in LEDCs.

    Where on a map will you find most of the poor countries (LEDCs) of the world?

    • A.

      North of the Equator.

    • B.

      South of the Equator.

    • C.

      West of the Equator.

    • D.

      East of the Equator.

    Correct Answer
    B. South of the Equator.
    Explanation
    Most of the poor countries (LEDCs) of the world are located south of the Equator. This is because many countries in the southern hemisphere, particularly in Africa and parts of Asia and South America, face significant economic challenges and high levels of poverty. Factors such as colonial history, political instability, limited access to resources, and underdeveloped infrastructure contribute to the economic struggles of these countries. Therefore, the majority of LEDCs can be found in the southern hemisphere, below the Equator.

Additionally, factors such as climate, geography, and historical colonization patterns have also influenced the distribution of wealth and development across different regions of the world.

Then your Father, who sees what is in secret will reward you.

    Correct Answer
    E. Matthew 6:2-4 “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honoured by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret.

It emphasizes the importance of giving without seeking recognition or praise from others.

    For Christians who are poor, donating money might be hard. These Christians can help the poor by

    Correct Answer
    volunteering their time/volunteering/donating

    • A.

      Lack of access to clean drinking water

    • B.

      Exploitation of the poor

Cholera outbreaks are more common in areas with inadequate sanitation and limited access to clean water, making it a significant risk factor for mortality in LEDCs.

    In the past, Christians tended to see natural disasters as punishments for not being faithful to God.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation

    In some countries, children are not more likely to die of diseases such as measles because there is no vaccination programme.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False

Therefore, it is incorrect to say that children in such countries are not more likely to die of diseases like measles due to the absence of a vaccination program.

    Some Christians see wealth as a temptation which does not lead some people to behave in a less than Christian manner.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Some Christians may see wealth as a temptation that can lead people to behave in a less than Christian manner. This perspective is based on the belief that material possessions can distract individuals from their spiritual journey and lead them to prioritize worldly desires over their faith.

Therefore, the statement that all Christians see wealth as a temptation and a cause for un-Christian behavior is false.

    Proverbs 13:11 'Dishonest money dwindles away but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow'  does not warn people that they must acquire money honestly.

    • A.

      True

Therefore, the proverb does indeed warn people to acquire money honestly.
