Which of the following describes the economies of Ghana and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)?
a. Ghana has a stable, fast-growing economy while DRC has an unstable economy due to internal conflict.
b. The economies of both Ghana and DRC are unstable due to political unrest and coups.
c. In the 1980s Ghana had a successful economy while DRC had a weak economy.
d. Both Ghana and DRC have stable and fast-growing economies.
So far, I know it is not d and I am considering a. My textbook says that there were several coups in the 1980s against Ghana, but democracy was restored after Jerry Rawlings seized power in 1981. And I also know that Ghana has exports which brings it money, such as cacao and gold. Based on this, I think it is a, but I am not sure.
