Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Is canada's ecological footprint...

    • A.

      Greater than the carrying capacity

    • B.

      Lesser than the carrying capacity

    • C.

      Equal to the carrying capacity

    • D.

      Unknown

    Correct Answer
    A. Greater than the carrying capacity
    Explanation
    Canada's ecological footprint is greater than the carrying capacity because the ecological footprint refers to the amount of biologically productive land and water required to support a population's consumption and waste generation. If the ecological footprint exceeds the carrying capacity, it means that the population is consuming and generating waste at a rate that is unsustainable and exceeds the Earth's capacity to regenerate resources and absorb waste. Therefore, the correct answer is that Canada's ecological footprint is greater than the carrying capacity.

    Define SAGD.

    • A.

      Steam assisted ground drilling

    • B.

      Steam aided ground drainage

    • C.

      Steam assisted gravity drainage

    • D.

      Steam aided gravity drilling

    Correct Answer
    C. Steam assisted gravity drainage
    Explanation
    SAGD stands for steam assisted gravity drainage. This technique is used in the oil industry to extract heavy oil and bitumen from underground reservoirs. It involves injecting steam into the reservoir to heat up the oil, reducing its viscosity and allowing it to flow more easily. Gravity then helps to drain the oil to a lower well where it can be collected. This method is commonly used in oil sands deposits where traditional drilling techniques are not effective.

    What are the 5 different time eras?

    Correct Answer
    pre-cambrian, proterozoic, palaezoic, mezozoic, cenozoic
    Explanation
    pre-cambrian, proterozoic, palaezoic, mezozoic, cenozoic

    Was the canadian shield created in the cenozoic era?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The Canadian Shield was not created in the Cenozoic era. The Canadian Shield is a large geological formation that covers a significant portion of Canada and parts of the northern United States. It is one of the oldest geological regions on Earth, formed billions of years ago during the Precambrian era. The Cenozoic era, on the other hand, began around 66 million years ago and is characterized by the diversification of mammals and the rise of modern ecosystems. Therefore, the Canadian Shield predates the Cenozoic era.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Canadian shield
    B. Appalatians
    C. The rockies
    Explanation
    The Canadian Shield, Appalachians, and the Rockies are landform regions found in Canada. The Canadian Shield is a large area of exposed Precambrian rock that covers much of eastern and central Canada. The Appalachians are a mountain range that stretches from Alabama in the United States up to Newfoundland in Canada. The Rockies are a major mountain range that runs through western North America, including parts of Canada. The Plateau of Tibet and the Alps are not landform regions found in Canada.

    Which of these are part of alfred wagner's theory?

    • A.

      The earth's crust is made up of techtonic plates

    • B.

      Techtonic plates shift and move over a weak layer of rock know as the mantle

    • C.

      The earth is very big

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The earth's crust is made up of techtonic plates
    B. Techtonic plates shift and move over a weak layer of rock know as the mantle
    Explanation
    Alfred Wegener's theory of continental drift proposed that the Earth's crust is made up of tectonic plates, which are large sections of the Earth's lithosphere that shift and move over a weak layer of rock known as the mantle. This theory explained the movement of continents and the formation of various geological features. The statement "the Earth is very big" is not part of Alfred Wegener's theory and is unrelated to the concept of continental drift.

    The three types of population pyramids are:
    1.  
    2.  
    3.  

    Correct Answer(s)
    constrictive expansive stationary
    Explanation
    The three types of population pyramids are constrictive, expansive, and stationary. These terms describe the shape and characteristics of the population pyramid, which represents the age and gender distribution of a population. A constrictive pyramid indicates a declining population with a larger proportion of older individuals. An expansive pyramid shows a growing population with a larger proportion of younger individuals. A stationary pyramid suggests a stable population with relatively equal proportions of different age groups.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a society in which the immigrants are encouraged to adopt the mainstream culture." In a melting pot society, immigrants are encouraged to assimilate into the dominant culture of the host country, often resulting in the blending of various cultures and the creation of a new, diverse society. This concept promotes the idea of cultural integration and unity among different groups of people.
