A Quiz On Global Poverty! Trivia

Here we leave you with a quiz on global poverty! Humans have four basic needs, which are food, water, shelter, and clothing. Though people need them, there are many countries in the world where a majority is lacking in some of the basic needs, which increases the level of poverty.
