    Correct Answer
    A. Too many people in the area
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that when there are too many people in a specific area, it can lead to overcrowding and unsanitary conditions. This can result in the spread of diseases due to a lack of proper sanitation, hygiene, and healthcare facilities. Additionally, overcrowding can also lead to a shortage of resources, including food and clean water, further contributing to the prevalence of diseases.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
