      Reduction of social vices

    Correct Answer
    B. Relegation of morality
    Explanation
    Members of a society are expected to adhere to societal values for several reasons. Firstly, adherence to societal values enhances development as it promotes cooperation and unity among members, leading to progress in various aspects of society. Secondly, it improves self-dignity by instilling a sense of pride and self-respect in individuals who follow these values. Additionally, adherence to societal values helps in reducing social vices by establishing a code of conduct and promoting ethical behavior. However, relegation of morality is not a reason for adhering to societal values as it implies disregarding or downplaying moral principles, which is not beneficial for the overall well-being of society.

    Which of the following is not a skill for settling inter-communal conflict?

    • A.

      Arbitration

    • B.

This can lead to a safer and more secure environment for all involved. It is important to note that inter-communal relationships should be based on mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation to achieve this advantage.

      Night and day

    Correct Answer
    D. Night and day
    Explanation
    Night and day is not directly related to the revolution of the earth. Night and day occur due to the rotation of the earth on its axis. As the earth rotates, different parts of the earth are either facing towards or away from the sun, causing the alternation between day and night. The revolution of the earth around the sun is responsible for the changing seasons and the varying duration of sunshine hours, as well as the unequal solar radiation on the earth's surface.

  • 15. 

    Which pair of activities would you NOT find in an equatorial climate? 1. commercial grain farming. 2. rice cultivation. 3. lumbering. 4. plantation agriculture. 5. dry farming?

    • A.

      1 and 5

    • B.

      3 and 4

    • C.

      2 and 5

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. 1 and 5
    Explanation
    In an equatorial climate, there is abundant rainfall and high temperatures throughout the year. This type of climate is not suitable for dry farming, which relies on limited rainfall and moisture retention in the soil. Commercial grain farming also requires a certain level of dryness and is therefore not typically found in equatorial climates. However, activities such as rice cultivation, lumbering, and plantation agriculture are commonly found in equatorial regions due to the favorable conditions for these practices. Therefore, the pair of activities that would NOT be found in an equatorial climate is 1 (commercial grain farming) and 5 (dry farming).

    Which of the following factors least explains the fast growing population in Africa?

    • A.

      The education of women

Factors such as the education of women, decline in death rate, and control of diseases have a more direct impact on population growth by influencing birth rates and reducing mortality rates.

Over time, this folding process results in the formation of mountain ranges. This explanation is supported by geological evidence and the observation of folded rock layers in mountainous regions around the world.

    Which of the following factors must account for the rapid increase in world population during the twentieth century?

    • A.

      Birth rates have increased rapidly

    • B.

      The slave trade was abolished

    • C.

      Death rates have decreased rapidly

    • D.

       Increasing world production of food

    Correct Answer
    C. Death rates have decreased rapidly
    Explanation
    The rapid increase in world population during the twentieth century can be attributed to the fact that death rates have decreased rapidly. This means that more people are living longer and surviving into adulthood, leading to a higher overall population. The other factors mentioned, such as increasing birth rates and the abolition of the slave trade, may have had some impact on population growth, but the decrease in death rates is the most significant factor in explaining the rapid increase in world population.

Influence is typically based on trust, credibility, and the ability to appeal to others' emotions or interests.

These politicians act as representatives of their respective governments and make decisions on behalf of their states in the confederation. This system allows for the member states to have a direct influence on the decision-making process and ensures that their interests are represented at the central level.

    • A.

      No answer

    • B.

      Capitalists shall always increase worker earning capacity through wages

    • C.

    • D.

      Capitalist profit is the surplus value obtained from workers labour

    Correct Answer
    D. Capitalist profit is the surplus value obtained from workers labour
    Explanation
    Karl Marx's central point in capitalism is that capitalist profit is the surplus value obtained from workers' labor. According to Marx, workers are exploited by capitalists who extract surplus value from their labor and keep it as profit. Marx argues that this profit is unjust because it is not a fair reflection of the value created by the workers. This concept of surplus value forms the basis of Marx's critique of capitalism and his call for a more equitable economic system.
