Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If you worked in Tennessee, where might you find a home in Alabama that would provide the shortest commute to work?

    • A.

      The northern suburbs of Gadsden

    • B.

      The northern suburbs of Huntsville

    • C.

      The northern exurbs of Florence

    • D.

      The northern exurbs of Birmingham

    Correct Answer
    C. The northern exurbs of Florence
    Explanation
    Living in the northern exurbs of Florence would provide the shortest commute to work in Tennessee. Since Florence is located in the northwest part of Alabama, it is geographically closer to Tennessee compared to the other options. The northern suburbs of Gadsden, Huntsville, and Birmingham are all located further south in Alabama, making the commute to Tennessee longer. Therefore, choosing the northern exurbs of Florence would minimize the travel time and distance between home and work.

    Based the map, which of the following statements is accurate?

    • A.

      Alabama is landlocked

    • B.

      Alabama's state government is centered in Tuscaloosa

    • C.

      Alabama has six major manufacturing centers

    • D.

      Most of the population of Alabama lives along the Mississippi border

    Correct Answer
    C. Alabama has six major manufacturing centers
    Explanation
    The map does not provide any information about Alabama being landlocked, the location of its state government, or the population distribution along the Mississippi border. However, the map does show several dots scattered across the state, which could represent major manufacturing centers. Therefore, the statement "Alabama has six major manufacturing centers" is accurate based on the given map.

    Correct Answer

    Columbus, Georgia is the major city closest to Alabama's state capital. Columbus is located on the western border of Georgia, right across the Chattahoochee River from Alabama. It is approximately 110 miles southwest of Montgomery, the capital of Alabama. Mobile, Gadsden, and Huntsville are not as close to Montgomery as Columbus, Georgia.

    • D.

      There are approximately the same number of males and females aged 65 and over

    Correct Answer
    A. There are more people over the age of 14 than over the age of 64
    Explanation
    The given answer states that there are more people over the age of 14 than over the age of 64 in Canada. This implies that the population pyramid of Canada is likely to be bottom-heavy, with a larger proportion of the population in younger age groups compared to older age groups. This could be due to factors such as higher birth rates and improved life expectancy.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of the following groups makes up more than half of the population?

    • A.

      Females aged 0 to 14 and 65+

    • B.

      Males aged 0 to 14 and 15 to 64

    • C.

      Males and females aged 15 to 64

    • D.

      Males aged 15+

    Correct Answer
    C. Males and females aged 15 to 64
    Explanation
    The group "males and females aged 15 to 64" makes up more than half of the population because it includes both males and females within the working age range, which typically represents a significant portion of the population. The other groups mentioned either focus on specific age ranges or exclude certain age groups, making them less likely to make up more than half of the population.

    • C.

      There are more female teenagers than male teenagers

    • D.

      The percentages of males and females are about equal in the first two age categories

    Correct Answer
    D. The percentages of males and females are about equal in the first two age categories
    Explanation
    The answer is "the percentages of males and females are about equal in the first two age categories". This generalization suggests that in the first two age categories, the number of males and females is roughly the same. It does not make any claims about the overall population or the gender ratio in other age categories.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which manufacturing center is closest to the raw materials you would need to establish a successful lumber business?

    • A.

      Gadsden

    • B.

      Montgomery

    • C.

      Huntsville

    • D.

      Mobile

    Correct Answer
    D. Mobile
    Explanation
    Mobile is the correct answer because it is a port city located on the Gulf Coast, making it closest to the raw materials needed for a lumber business. Being located near the coast allows for easier transportation and access to timber resources, which is essential for a successful lumber business. Gadsden, Montgomery, and Huntsville are not located near the coast and therefore would not have the same proximity to the necessary raw materials.
