    Which of the following is the equation for gravity model?

    • A.

      (population 1 multiplied by population 2) divided by distance^2

    • B.

      (population 1 added by population 2) divided by distance^2

    • C.

      (population 1 multiplied by population 2) divided by distance

    • D.

      (population 1 added by population 2) divided by distance

    Correct Answer
    A. (population 1 multiplied by population 2) divided by distance^2
    Explanation
    The equation for the gravity model is given by multiplying population 1 and population 2 and then dividing it by the square of the distance. This equation takes into account the idea that the gravitational force between two objects decreases as the distance between them increases, and is also influenced by the size of the populations involved.

    Which of the following is an example of NOT a push factor 

    • A.

      War

    • C.

      Job opportunities

    • D.

      Political instability

    Correct Answer
    C. Job opportunities
    Explanation
    Job opportunities are not a push factor but rather a pull factor.

In contrast, job opportunities attract individuals to a particular location, making it a pull factor.

    Based on Ravenstein's ideas, who immigrated long distances? 

    • A.

      Elderly people

    • B.

      People with families

    • C.

      Young adults

    • D.

      Women

    Correct Answer
    C. Young adults
    Explanation
    According to Ravenstein's ideas, young adults are more likely to immigrate long distances. This is because they are often seeking better opportunities, such as education, employment, or adventure, which may be available in distant locations. Elderly people are less likely to immigrate long distances due to factors such as health concerns and established roots in their current location. People with families may also be less inclined to immigrate long distances due to the stability and support provided by their family network. Women, although they may immigrate, are not specifically mentioned as a group that is more likely to immigrate long distances according to Ravenstein's ideas.

    B. Friends

Job opportunities can also be considered an intervening obstacle if they are scarce or inaccessible.
