  12. 01-05 The frequency an object appears in a given area is its density. diffusion. dispersion. distribution. region. Explanation: Density and concentration are not synonymous. Density is specified by the number of objects in a given area. Concentration describes the dispersal of those objects.

  14. 01-06 Looking at a world map, choose the most correct location for this pair of latitude and longitude coordinates (expressed in degrees): 0,0. Central Australia Northwest Brazil Southwest of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean Near the South Pole in Antarctica London, England Explanation: The coordinates 0,0 mark the point at which the Equator intersects the Prime Meridian in the Atlantic Ocean.

  15. 01-06

  16. 01-07 Lines of ________ are drawn as east and west circles on the globe and yet they measure distances north and south of the ________. longitude, Prime Meridian longitude, Equator latitude, Prime Meridian latitude, Equator latitude, Date Line

  17. 01-07 Lines of ________ are drawn as east and west circles on the globe and yet they measure distances north and south of the ________. longitude, Prime Meridian longitude, Equator latitude, Prime Meridian latitude, Equator latitude, Date Line Explanation: Latitude measures distance north and south from the Equator as an angle. It ranges from 0 to 90 degrees.

  18. 01-07

  19. 01-08 Meridians of longitude on the globe are the same length north to south. converge at the poles. terminate at the poles. intersect the Equator. All of the above are correct.

  20. 01-08 Meridians of longitude on the globe are the same length north to south. converge at the poles. terminate at the poles. intersect the Equator. All of the above are correct. Explanation: Lines of longitude measure distance east and west of the Prime Meridian in angles ranging from 0 to 180.

  21. 01-09 Imagine that you are aboard a ship on September 21 sailing along the Equator. Glancing upward you notice that the sun is directly overhead. Your watch is set to Greenwich time and reads 6 P.M. What is your longitude? 90 degrees west of Greenwich 90 degrees east of Greenwich 180 degrees west of Greenwich 180 degrees east of Greenwich 30 degrees east of Greenwich

  22. 01-09 Imagine that you are aboard a ship on September 21 sailing along the Equator. Glancing upward you notice that the sun is directly overhead. Your watch is set to Greenwich time and reads 6 P.M. What is your longitude? 90 degrees west of Greenwich 90 degrees east of Greenwich 180 degrees west of Greenwich 180 degrees east of Greenwich 30 degrees east of Greenwich Explanation: September 21 is the date of the Autumnal Equinox. The sun appears directly overhead at noon. The difference in hours between local time (noon) and Greenwich (6 P.M.) is six hours. For every hour, add fifteen degrees of longitude, placing the ship at ninety degrees west of Greenwich

  23. 01-09

  24. 01-10 Which of the following is NOT a formal culture region? The distribution network for USA Today newspaper A wheat-growing county in Kansas A Haitian neighborhood in Miami, Florida The part of Italy called “Lombardy” A French-language region in Canada

  25. 01-10 Which of the following is NOT a formal culture region? The distribution network for USA Today newspaper A wheat-growing county in Kansas A Haitian neighborhood in Miami, Florida The part of Italy called “Lombardy” A French-language region in Canada Explanation: Formal regions are characterized a degree of homogeneity while functional regions are marked by a node-and-periphery pattern.
