      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The statement "More people lived in Europe in 650 AD than in 500 AD" is false. This is because during the period from 500 AD to 650 AD, Europe experienced a decline in population due to various factors such as the fall of the Western Roman Empire, invasions by barbarian tribes, and the spread of diseases.

    Explanation
    During the 14th century, Western Europe experienced significant population growth due to advancements in agriculture, trade, and urbanization. This period saw the rise of powerful city-states, such as Venice and Florence, as well as the expansion of the Holy Roman Empire. These factors contributed to a higher population density in Western Europe compared to other regions during 1340 AD. Therefore, the statement that more people lived in Western Europe in 1340 AD than any other part is true.

    Correct Answer

This can be attributed to various factors such as differences in agricultural productivity, trade routes, and political stability. Southern Europe, particularly regions like Italy and Greece, had established civilizations and urban centers, which likely contributed to a larger population. In contrast, Eastern Europe experienced political turmoil and invasions during the medieval period, which may have led to a decline in population.

    The statement is false because the population of Europe did not increase from 500 AD to 650 AD. It was during this time period, known as the Early Middle Ages, that Europe experienced a decline in population due to factors such as invasions, warfare, and disease outbreaks. The fall of the Western Roman Empire and the migration of various tribes also contributed to a decrease in population during this period.
