    C. Desert
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Desert" because it is not one of the 5 Themes of Geography. The 5 Themes of Geography are Place, Location, Human-Environment Interaction, Movement, and Region. Deserts are a type of geographic feature or biome, but they do not fall under any of the specific themes. The 5 Themes of Geography provide a framework for understanding and studying different aspects of the Earth's physical and human features.

    When we talk about Place within the context of the Five Themes of Geography, what do we mean?

    • A.

      Absolute and relative location

    • B.

      The natural and human characteristics that make up an area

    • C.

      The interaction of people and the environment

    Correct Answer
    B. The natural and human characteristics that make up an area
    Explanation
    When we talk about "Place" within the context of the Five Themes of Geography, we are referring to the natural and human characteristics that make up a specific area. This includes the physical features such as landforms, climate, and vegetation, as well as the cultural aspects such as language, religion, and architecture. It focuses on understanding the unique qualities and attributes that define a particular location and differentiate it from others. By studying the natural and human characteristics of a place, geographers can gain insights into its identity, diversity, and the interactions between people and their environment.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Geographers describe places by their ____________ and _____________ characteristics

    • A.

      Desert and liquid

    • B.

      Human and physical

    • C.

      Height and landform

    Correct Answer
    B. Human and physical
    Explanation
    Geographers describe places by their human and physical characteristics. Human characteristics refer to the features that are created or influenced by humans, such as buildings, roads, and cultural aspects. Physical characteristics, on the other hand, are the natural features of a place, including landforms, climate, and vegetation. By considering both human and physical characteristics, geographers can gain a comprehensive understanding of a place and its unique attributes.

  • 4. 

    Human and Environmental interaction deasl with how people interact with each other

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is incorrect. Human and Environmental interaction actually deals with how people interact with the environment, not with each other. This field of study explores the impact of human activities on the environment and how the environment, in turn, influences human behavior and societies. It focuses on the relationship between humans and their natural surroundings, including aspects such as resource use, pollution, climate change, and conservation.

    Rate this question:

      Digging a ditch to help drain a swamp.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above." This is because all the given options involve people interacting with their environment in some way. Building a house in the desert, creating a pond in your backyard, and digging a ditch to help drain a swamp all involve modifying or utilizing the natural environment for human purposes.

      Places

    • B.

      Region

    • C.

      Location

    Correct Answer
    B. Region
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Region." A region refers to areas or places that share at least one common feature. It is a geographic or administrative area that is defined by certain characteristics or boundaries. Regions can be defined based on physical features, cultural similarities, or political divisions. Therefore, "Region" is the most appropriate term to describe areas or places that have a common feature.

    Rate this question:

    What are the two type of locations:

    • A.

      Local and GPS

    • B.

      Absolute and Relative

    • C.

      Latitude and Longitude

    Correct Answer
    B. Absolute and Relative
    Explanation
    The two types of locations mentioned in the question are absolute and relative. Absolute location refers to the exact coordinates of a place on the Earth's surface, typically expressed in terms of latitude and longitude. On the other hand, relative location describes the position of a place in relation to other landmarks or geographic features. These terms are commonly used in geography and navigation to accurately pinpoint and describe different locations.

    • B.

      Movement

    • C.

      Region

    Correct Answer
    B. Movement
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "movement" because this theme of geography focuses on the ways in which people, goods, and ideas move from one place to another. It examines the patterns and processes of migration, transportation, communication, and trade. This theme helps us understand how and why people interact with each other and how these interactions shape the cultural, social, and economic aspects of different regions.

    ______________  location deals with the interaction that occurs between and among places. 

    • A.

      Absolute

    • B.

      Relative

    • C.

      Human and Environment Interaction

    Correct Answer
    B. Relative
    Explanation
    Relative location refers to the position of a place in relation to other places. It is a spatial concept that helps understand the interaction and connectivity between different locations. Unlike absolute location, which provides specific coordinates, relative location focuses on the relationships and connections between places. This can include factors such as proximity, accessibility, and connectivity, which play a crucial role in shaping interactions and relationships between different places.

    Rate this question:

    Longitude and Latitude is apart of ______________ location.

    • A.

      Relative

    • B.

      Absolute

    • C.

      Human-environmental interaction

    Correct Answer
    B. Absolute
    Explanation
    Longitude and Latitude are used to determine the exact position of a place on the Earth's surface. They provide a precise and fixed location for any point on the globe, making it an absolute location. This is in contrast to relative location, which describes the position of a place in relation to other landmarks or features. Therefore, the correct answer is absolute.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Longitude Lines run _________ and _______ but measure __________ and __________.

    • A.

      East and West but measure North and South

    • B.

      East and West but measure East and West

    • C.

      North and South but measure East and West

    Correct Answer
    C. North and South but measure East and West
    Explanation
    Longitude lines run north and south because they are imaginary lines that circle the Earth from the North Pole to the South Pole. However, they measure east and west because they help determine the angular distance between any two points on the Earth's surface in an east-west direction.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Latitude Lines run _______ and _________ but measure ___________ and __________.

    • A.

      East and West but measure North and South

    • B.

      East and West but measure East and West

    • C.

      North and South but measure East and West

    Correct Answer
    A. East and West but measure North and South
    Explanation
    Latitude lines run East and West but measure North and South. This is because latitude lines are imaginary lines that run parallel to the equator, which is the line that divides the Earth into the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere. The measurement of latitude determines the distance of a location from the equator, with the equator being 0 degrees latitude and the poles being 90 degrees latitude North or South. Therefore, latitude measures the North-South position of a location, even though the lines themselves run East-West.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    How many minutes are there in a degree of latitude or longitude?

    • A.

      30

    • B.

      45

    • C.

      60

    Correct Answer
    C. 60
    Explanation
    There are 60 minutes in a degree of latitude or longitude. This is because the Earth is divided into 360 degrees of longitude and 180 degrees of latitude. Each degree is further divided into 60 minutes, making a total of 21,600 minutes of latitude or longitude on the Earth's surface.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    ’  when measuring longitude or latitude means _______.

    • A.

      Minutes

    • B.

      Seconds

    • C.

      Hours

    Correct Answer
    B. Seconds
    Explanation
    When measuring longitude or latitude, seconds are used as a unit of measurement. Minutes and hours can also be used, but seconds provide a more precise measurement.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Which continent is located in the Southern Himisphere?

    • A.

      North America

    • B.

      Europe

    • C.

      Australia

    Correct Answer
    C. Australia
    Explanation
    Australia is located in the Southern Hemisphere. It is the smallest continent and is situated entirely in the Southern Hemisphere, which means it is below the equator. This is why Australia experiences opposite seasons compared to the Northern Hemisphere. North America and Europe are both located in the Northern Hemisphere, so they are not the correct answers.
