Explanation
The correct answer is "Ageing population is when the middle age of a country or region rises." This means that the proportion of people in the middle age group (typically between 40 and 65 years old) is increasing in a country or region. This can occur due to factors such as declining birth rates and increasing life expectancy. An aging population has implications for various aspects of society, including healthcare, retirement systems, and labor markets.

This is due to factors such as declining fertility rates and changes in societal norms.

Yes

• B.

No

• C.

A. Yes
Explanation
Singapore is considered an aging country because it has a rapidly aging population. The birth rate in Singapore has been declining, while life expectancy has been increasing. This has led to a larger proportion of elderly individuals in the population. Additionally, Singapore has a low fertility rate and a high life expectancy, which further contributes to its status as an aging country. The government has implemented various policies and initiatives to address the challenges associated with an aging population, such as healthcare and retirement planning.

• A.

Sleep

• B.

Eat

• C.

Have more babies

• D.

Stop marriage

• E.

Cry

C. Have more babies
Explanation
If there is a low population growth rate, having more babies would be a possible solution to increase the population. This is because when there are more births than deaths, the population will naturally grow. Therefore, increasing the number of babies being born can help counterbalance the low growth rate.

### What if we do not increase the low population growth?

• A.

There is not going to be enough people to work.

• B.

Singapore will lose to other countries

• C.

Singapore will stay the same

A. There is not going to be enough people to work.
Explanation
If the low population growth is not increased, there will not be enough people to work. This implies that the labor force will be insufficient to meet the demands of the economy. As a result, Singapore may face challenges in sustaining its workforce and maintaining productivity levels. This could potentially hinder economic growth and competitiveness, making it more difficult for Singapore to compete with other countries. Therefore, it is crucial to address the issue of low population growth to ensure a sufficient labor supply for the country's workforce needs.
