    A. Extractive
    Explanation
    Production at the secondary level, which refers to the manufacturing or processing of raw materials into finished goods, relies on the extractive industry for its raw materials. The extractive industry involves the extraction of natural resources such as minerals, oil, gas, or timber from the earth or sea. These raw materials are then used as inputs in the manufacturing process to produce goods. Therefore, the extractive industry plays a crucial role in supplying the necessary raw materials for secondary level production.

    • D.

      Manufacturing

    Correct Answer
    D. Manufacturing
    Explanation
    Manufacturing is operating at the secondary stage of production because it involves the transformation of raw materials into finished goods through various processes such as cutting, shaping, assembling, and packaging. This stage follows the primary stage, which includes activities like mining, fishing, and agriculture that extract or produce raw materials. Manufacturing adds value to these raw materials by converting them into usable products for consumers.

    Forestry operates at the primary stage of production as it involves the cultivation, management, and harvesting of trees for various purposes such as timber, paper, and other forest products. This industry is involved in the initial extraction of raw materials from nature and is considered a primary industry. Construction, transportation, and communication are secondary or tertiary industries as they involve processing, transportation, and communication of goods and services rather than the direct extraction of natural resources.

    Explanation
    Tourism is considered a service industry because it involves providing services to customers rather than producing tangible goods. In the tourism industry, businesses offer various services such as accommodation, transportation, entertainment, and guided tours to cater to the needs and wants of travelers. Unlike manufacturing, construction, and fishing, which involve the production of physical products, tourism focuses on delivering experiences and services to customers, making it a service industry.

Building is considered a secondary industry as it adds value to the raw materials and products provided by primary industries.

This payment is separate from other factors of production such as wages for labor, rent for land, and profit for entrepreneurship.
