If a country has a triangle population pyramid what does this tell you?

• A.

Its a developed country

• B.

Its a developing country

• C.

Nothing

B. Its a developing country
Explanation
A triangle population pyramid indicates that the country has a high proportion of young people and a relatively low proportion of elderly people. This suggests that the country has a high birth rate and a lower life expectancy, which are characteristics commonly associated with developing countries. In contrast, developed countries typically have a more rectangular or inverted pyramid shape, reflecting a lower birth rate and a longer life expectancy.

2.6

• B.

3.2

A. 2.6
Explanation
In 2004, Australia's population density was approximately 2.6 people per square kilometer. This means that on average, there were 2.6 individuals living in every square kilometer of land in Australia during that year. This indicates that Australia has a relatively low population density, with vast areas of uninhabited or sparsely populated land.

The coast

• B.

A city

• C.

A farm

• D.

New Zeland

A. The coast
Explanation
Approximately 85% of Australians live within 50km of the coast. This is because Australia is an island continent with a vast coastline, and many cities and towns are located along the coast. The coast offers various economic opportunities, such as fishing, tourism, and trade, making it attractive for people to settle there. Additionally, the coastal areas often have milder climates and access to beautiful beaches, which further contributes to their popularity as residential areas.

Rate this question:

The country has a high Human Development Index (HDI), indicating a high level of education, healthcare, and income for its citizens. Australia also has a stable political system, a well-functioning legal system, and a high level of technological advancement. Additionally, Australia has a high GDP per capita and is known for its high quality of life, making it a prime example of a developed country.

The correct answer is "Census." The census is a nationwide survey that is conducted every 5 years to gather information about the population of a country.

Rate this question:

• 8.

Australians population density is high compared to other countries.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is "Australians population density is high compared to other countries." The correct answer is False. This means that the population density in Australia is not high compared to other countries. The explanation could be that Australia is a large country with a relatively small population. It has a land area of about 7.7 million square kilometers, but its population is around 25 million people. This results in a relatively low population density compared to countries with smaller land areas and larger populations.

Rate this question:

• 9.

Why is the population density in Australia low?

• A.

Big cities.

• B.

Not many people in Australia.

• C.

Big deserts where nobody lives.

• D.

The population density is high.

C. Big deserts where nobody lives.
Explanation
The population density in Australia is low because of the presence of big deserts where nobody lives. These deserts, such as the Great Victoria Desert and the Great Sandy Desert, cover a significant portion of the country and are inhospitable for human habitation due to extreme temperatures, lack of water, and limited resources. As a result, the majority of the Australian population is concentrated in the coastal areas and big cities, leaving vast stretches of uninhabited desert regions with very low population density.

What shape should a population pyramid be of a developed country?

• A.

Triangle

• B.

C. Square
Explanation
A square-shaped population pyramid indicates a developed country. In such a pyramid, the number of people in each age group is relatively equal, suggesting a stable population with low birth and death rates. This shape is characteristic of countries with advanced healthcare systems, high life expectancies, and low fertility rates. The square shape reflects a balanced distribution of the population across different age groups, indicating a mature and developed society.

Rate this question:

• 12.

What type of birth rate does a developing country have?

• A.

Low

• B.

None

• C.

High

• D.

Normal

C. High
Explanation
A developing country typically has a high birth rate. This is because developing countries often have higher fertility rates due to factors such as limited access to contraception, lower levels of education and healthcare, and cultural norms that encourage larger families. These factors contribute to a higher number of births per woman in developing countries compared to developed countries.
