    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Who gave away the group's position?

      The Taliban

    • B.

      Afgan Shepards

    • C.

      Erik Kreuger

    • D.

      Recon Plane

    Correct Answer
    B. Afgan Shepards
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Afghan Shepherds. Afghan Shepherds are likely to have given away the group's position because they are local inhabitants and may have knowledge of the area, making it easier for them to identify and report the group's presence to the enemy. The Taliban, Erik Kreuger, and the Recon Plane are not mentioned in the question and therefore not relevant to the answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which was not an advantage the Taliban had?

      Knowledge of the Terrain

    • B.

      Many More Troops

    • C.

      Air Support

    • D.

      A Good Battle Plan

    Correct Answer
    C. Air Support
    Explanation
    The Taliban did not have the advantage of air support. This means that they did not have access to aircraft or helicopters to provide them with aerial surveillance, transportation, or the ability to launch airstrikes on their enemies. This would have put them at a disadvantage compared to their opponents who had access to air support, as it would have limited their ability to gather intelligence, move quickly and efficiently, and launch attacks from the air.
