The Doric order was the first of the three classical orders of architecture in ancient Greece and was used extensively in the construction of temples during the Archaic and Classical periods. The Corinthian style, on the other hand, emerged later and featured more elaborate and decorative elements, while the Palaeolithic style refers to a prehistoric period and is not relevant to Greek temple architecture.

      True

    • B.

      False

While there were certainly advancements in architecture and the construction of grand temples during this time, it does not necessarily mean that people spent more time in these temples. The Hellenistic period was marked by a variety of cultural, social, and political changes, but an increase in temple visitation was not one of them.
