    Correct Answer
    B. Tenement
    Explanation
    During the Industrial Revolution, there was a high demand for housing due to the rapid urbanization and influx of workers. Tenements were the solution to this problem, as they were cheap and quickly constructed apartment houses that could accommodate a large number of people. However, these tenements were often in poor condition, with cramped living spaces, inadequate sanitation, and minimal amenities. They barely met the minimum standards of habitability, making them a symbol of the harsh living conditions experienced by the working class during that time.

    • C.

    • D.

      Factory

    Correct Answer
    D. Factory
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Factory". A factory is an industrial building where laborers manufacture goods. This is different from a flophouse, which is a cheap lodging for transient people, a warehouse, which is a large storage space for goods, and a building, which is a general term that does not specify the purpose or function.

    • A.

      Tree house

    • B.

      Crazy house

    • C.

      Flophouse

    • D.

      Warehouse

    Correct Answer
    C. Flophouse
    Explanation
    A flophouse is a type of cheap accommodation, typically a run-down building, where people can rent a bed for a short period of time. It is usually associated with a low-quality living environment, lacking basic amenities and often housing individuals who are transient or struggling financially. The other options listed (shabby house, tree house, crazy house, warehouse) do not specifically refer to this type of accommodation or carry the same connotations of poverty and transience.

      Freight

    • B.

      Baggage

    • C.

      Luggage

    • D.

      Wheelwright

    Correct Answer
    A. Freight
    Explanation
    Freight refers to the transportation of goods, whether by land, sea, or air. It is a term commonly used in the logistics and transportation industry to describe the movement of cargo or merchandise. Unlike baggage or luggage, which typically refers to personal belongings, freight specifically relates to the transportation of commercial goods. Wheelwright, on the other hand, refers to a person who makes or repairs wheels, and is not directly related to the transportation of goods. Therefore, the correct answer in this context is freight.

This region had abundant natural resources, such as coal and iron ore, which were essential for industrial production. Additionally, the North had a larger population and better transportation infrastructure, making it easier to attract workers and distribute goods. As a result, the North experienced rapid urbanization and the development of cities like Manchester and Birmingham. Therefore, it is true that the Industrial Revolution mainly involved the North, especially in the beginning.
