    Correct Answer
    C. Antarctica doesn't have a true government due to no indigenous people.
    Explanation
    Antarctica doesn't have a true government due to no indigenous people. This means that there is no established system of governance or political authority in Antarctica. As there are no permanent residents or indigenous population in Antarctica, there is no need for a government to manage the affairs of the continent. However, there are international agreements and treaties in place, such as the Antarctic Treaty System, which govern the activities and cooperation of the countries that have scientific research stations in Antarctica.

    Correct Answer
    A. Because its too cold to live on the continent.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Because it's too cold to live on the continent." This explanation is supported by the fact that Antarctica is known for its extreme cold temperatures, with the lowest recorded temperature being around -128.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Such harsh conditions make it difficult for humans to survive and carry out activities other than scientific research. The lack of suitable living conditions, including extreme cold and limited resources, makes it impractical for anyone other than researchers to inhabit Antarctica.
