    • B.

      Geography

    • C.

      Population Growth

    Explanation
    Demography is the study of human population, including their size, distribution, composition, and changes over time. It focuses on factors such as birth rates, death rates, migration patterns, and social and economic characteristics of populations. Demography helps in understanding population dynamics, predicting future population trends, and making informed decisions related to public policy, healthcare, and resource allocation. Geography is the study of the Earth's physical features, climate, and human populations, but it is a broader field that encompasses various aspects of the Earth's surface. Population growth is a related concept but does not encompass the comprehensive study of human populations like demography does. Cartography is the study and practice of making maps and does not specifically focus on human populations.

    Humans generally settle next to bodies of water such as lakes, rivers, and oceans. This is because water is essential for survival and provides a source of food, transportation, and trade. Additionally, bodies of water often offer fertile land for agriculture and provide a natural barrier for protection against potential threats. Therefore, humans are naturally drawn to settle near bodies of water for their various benefits and resources.

    A blended family is a family structure that consists of two adults, each with children from previous relationships. In this type of family, the parents may have gotten divorced or widowed and have remarried, bringing their children from their previous marriages into the new family unit. This creates a unique dynamic where the children have step-siblings and may have to adjust to living with a new parent figure. Blended families require effective communication, understanding, and compromise to navigate the complexities of merging two separate families into one cohesive unit.

      Educated people are more likely to value marriage and family life

    Correct Answer
    C. More educated people tend to have less children
    Explanation
    More educated people tend to have fewer children. This can be attributed to several factors. Firstly, education provides individuals with better access to information and resources for family planning, leading to a more conscious decision about the number of children they want to have. Additionally, higher education often leads to better job opportunities and higher incomes, which can make raising a larger family more challenging. Lastly, educated individuals may prioritize career advancement and personal goals over starting a family, resulting in a lower fertility rate among this group.

    Which of the following lines is the primary starting point to measure LATITUDE or, 0 degrees latitude.

    • A.

      Prime Meridian

    • B.

    Explanation
    The Equator is the primary starting point to measure latitude or 0 degrees latitude. It is an imaginary line that divides the Earth into the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere. The latitude of any point on the Earth's surface is measured as the angle between that point and the Equator. The Equator is located at 0 degrees latitude, making it the starting point for measuring latitude.

      Circles

    Correct Answer
    B. Longitude
    Explanation
    Longitude refers to lines that run vertically on a map or globe, measuring distances east and west from the Prime Meridian. These lines help determine a location's position in terms of its distance from the North and South Poles. Latitude, on the other hand, measures distances north and south from the Equator. Tropics and Circles are not directly related to measuring distance north and south from the Equator.

They are created and spread through human creativity, imagination, and cultural influences, making them a manifestation of ideas.
