    Correct Answer
    A. Miners
    Explanation
    Miners are involved in primary production because they extract natural resources from the earth, such as minerals, metals, and fossil fuels. They play a crucial role in the initial stage of production by obtaining raw materials that are then used in various industries for further processing and manufacturing. Goldsmiths, accountants, and carpenters, on the other hand, are not directly involved in primary production as their work is focused on different aspects such as crafting, financial management, and construction.

    One of the causes of desertification is.............

    • A.

      Excessive rainfall

    • B.

      Afforestation

    • C.

      Decrease in population

    • D.

      Overgrazing

    Correct Answer
    D. Overgrazing
    Explanation
    Overgrazing refers to the excessive consumption of vegetation by livestock, leading to the depletion of plant cover and soil erosion. This can result in the degradation of land, making it vulnerable to desertification. As animals continuously graze on plants, they prevent them from regenerating and disrupt the natural balance of the ecosystem. This ultimately leads to the loss of fertile soil, increased aridity, and the transformation of once productive land into desert-like conditions. Thus, overgrazing is a significant cause of desertification.

    The most common way of becoming a citizen of a country is by......

    • A.

      Registration

    • B.

      Birth

    • C.

      Adoption

    • D.

      Marriage

    Correct Answer
    B. Birth
    Explanation
    Birth is the most common way of becoming a citizen of a country because it is a natural occurrence and is not dependent on any external factors such as registration, adoption, or marriage. When a person is born in a country, they automatically acquire citizenship of that country, regardless of the nationality of their parents. This principle is known as jus soli, which means "right of the soil." Therefore, birth is the most straightforward and common way for individuals to obtain citizenship in a country.

    Which of the following rock types is formed in layers?

    • A.

      Sandstone

    • B.

      Marble

    • C.

      Clay

    • D.

      Granite

    Correct Answer
    A. Sandstone
    Explanation
    Sandstone is formed in layers because it is a sedimentary rock. Sedimentary rocks are formed from the accumulation and compression of layers of sediment over time. Sandstone specifically is made up of sand-sized particles that have been compacted and cemented together. This process creates distinct layers within the rock, giving it its characteristic appearance. Marble, clay, and granite, on the other hand, are not formed in layers. Marble is a metamorphic rock, clay is a sedimentary rock, and granite is an igneous rock.

    A map is drawn to the scale of 1:1,000,000. Find the actual distance between two towns, Dogo and Daga which are 5.5cm apart.

    • A.

      5 kilometres

    • B.

      5.5 kilometres

    • C.

      50 Kilometres

    • D.

      55 kilometres

    Correct Answer
    D. 55 kilometres
    Explanation
    The map is drawn to a scale of 1:1,000,000. This means that every 1cm on the map represents 1,000,000cm in reality. Since Dogo and Daga are 5.5cm apart on the map, the actual distance between them would be 5.5 x 1,000,000cm, which is equal to 5,500,000cm. Converting this to kilometers, we divide by 100,000 to get 55 kilometers. Therefore, the actual distance between Dogo and Daga is 55 kilometers.

    The meeting of warm air mass and cold air mass causes..........

    • A.

      Cyclonic rainfall

    • B.

      Relief rainfall

    • C.

      Torrential rainfall

    • D.

      Convectional rainfall

    Correct Answer
    A. Cyclonic rainfall
    Explanation
    When a warm air mass and a cold air mass meet, it creates a boundary known as a front. Along this front, the warm air rises above the cold air, causing the warm air to cool and condense. This condensation leads to the formation of clouds and eventually rainfall. In the case of cyclonic rainfall, the meeting of warm and cold air masses is associated with the presence of a low-pressure system, which enhances the upward movement of air and the development of intense rainfall. Therefore, the correct answer is cyclonic rainfall.
