      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Most of the population in Ghana lives in urban areas" is false. In reality, the majority of the population in Ghana resides in rural areas rather than urban areas. According to data from the World Bank, as of 2019, only around 56% of Ghana's population lived in urban areas, while the remaining 44% lived in rural areas. This indicates that a significant portion of the population still resides in non-urban regions of the country.

    • B.

      What are the chances of children dying before the age of five?

    Correct Answer
    C. What percentage of people get better chances for leisure activities?
    Explanation
    The question asks for an index that is not a measure of development in a country. The first four options: life expectancy, child mortality rate, access to food, and access to clean drinking water, are all commonly used indicators of development. However, the percentage of people who have better chances for leisure activities is not typically considered a direct measure of development. While leisure activities may contribute to overall well-being and quality of life, they are not usually used as a primary indicator of a country's level of development.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    ___________________________ is how long people expect to live?

    Correct Answer
    Life Expectancy
    Life expectancy
    Explanation
    Life expectancy refers to the average number of years that a person is expected to live based on various factors such as their birth year, current age, gender, and health conditions. It is a statistical measure that helps estimate the length of time an individual is likely to live. Life expectancy can vary across different countries and regions due to variations in healthcare, lifestyle choices, and socioeconomic factors.

    Infant Mortality
    Explanation
    The term "infant mortality" refers to the number of little kids who die before the age of five. It is a measure used to assess the health and well-being of a population, particularly in terms of the quality of healthcare and living conditions.

    "Do they have acces to medical help?" is directly related with.....

    • A.

      Life expectancy

    • B.

      GDP per capita

    • C.

      Literacy rate

    Correct Answer
    A. Life expectancy
    Explanation
    The question "Do they have access to medical help?" is directly related to life expectancy. Access to medical help plays a crucial role in determining the overall health and well-being of individuals, which in turn affects life expectancy. If people have easy access to medical facilities, they are more likely to receive timely and appropriate healthcare, leading to better health outcomes and potentially longer life expectancy. On the other hand, limited access to medical help can result in untreated illnesses, higher mortality rates, and lower life expectancy.

    Rate this question:

    UK is having _______________ % of infant mortality.

    .7
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 0.7 or .7. This suggests that the UK has a relatively low infant mortality rate, as the percentage is less than 1%. A lower infant mortality rate indicates better healthcare and living conditions for infants in the country.

    • D.

      Ghana

    Correct Answer
    B. Brazil

This means that a large majority of the people in Brazil have access to clean and safe drinking water, which is essential for their health and well-being. The other countries listed in the options may have different percentages of their population with access to safe drinking water, but Brazil is the one with the highest percentage among the given choices.

    Greater the life expectancy greater will be the development

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that there is a positive correlation between life expectancy and development. This means that as life expectancy increases, development also increases. This could be because longer life expectancy indicates better healthcare, improved living conditions, and overall progress in a society. Therefore, it can be inferred that the greater the life expectancy, the greater the development.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Greater the infant mortality rate lesser will be the development?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because a high infant mortality rate indicates poor healthcare and social conditions, which can hinder a country's overall development. When a country is unable to provide adequate healthcare and support for its infants, it reflects a lack of resources, infrastructure, and investment in human capital. In contrast, countries with low infant mortality rates tend to have better healthcare systems, higher life expectancies, and higher levels of development. Therefore, there is a correlation between a higher infant mortality rate and lower development.

    Explanation
    LEDCs, or Less Economically Developed Countries, tend to have many people who can't find paid work. This is often due to a lack of job opportunities and a high unemployment rate. Additionally, LEDCs often struggle with poor infrastructure, including inadequate roads, electricity supply, and water supplies. These factors can hinder economic development and make it difficult for businesses to operate efficiently.
