    European countries such as the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and even Belgium relied on Africa and Asia for raw materials. These continents were rich in natural resources such as minerals, timber, rubber, and oil, which were essential for Europe's industrialization and economic growth.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because historically, Eastern Europe has been more focused on agricultural work compared to Western Europe. This can be attributed to factors such as climate, geography, and historical developments. Eastern Europe has a larger percentage of rural population, and agriculture plays a significant role in their economies. On the other hand, Western Europe has undergone industrialization and urbanization earlier, leading to a shift away from agriculture towards other sectors such as manufacturing and services.

    The statement suggests that Western and Northern Europe had a stronger emphasis on industrial work compared to Eastern Europe. This could be attributed to various factors such as historical developments, economic policies, and geographical advantages. Western and Northern Europe have a long history of industrialization and were early adopters of industrial technologies. They also had access to abundant natural resources, advanced infrastructure, and established trade networks, which facilitated the growth of industrial sectors. On the other hand, Eastern Europe faced challenges like political instability, limited resources, and a more agrarian-based economy, which hindered the development of industrialization to the same extent.
