    For what reason is mahogany furniture so expensive?

    • A.

      It is visually attractive

    • B.

      It is not native to North America or Europe

    • C.

      It is much heavier than other woods

    Correct Answer
    B. It is not native to North America or Europe
    Explanation
    Mahogany furniture is expensive because it is not native to North America or Europe. This means that it needs to be imported from regions where it naturally grows, adding to the cost. Additionally, the scarcity of mahogany due to limited availability contributes to its high price. Its unique visual appeal and the fact that it is heavier than other woods also add to its value.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which is usually the more expensive wood?

      Cherry

    • B.

      Maple

    Correct Answer
    A. Cherry
    Explanation
    Cherry wood is usually more expensive than maple wood. This is because cherry wood is considered a higher-end hardwood and is known for its rich, warm color and beautiful grain patterns. It is also more difficult to work with due to its hardness, which adds to its cost. On the other hand, maple wood is more readily available and easier to work with, making it a more affordable option.
