6). Why is the population of the Atlantic Provinces so small?
7). Why are Ontario Quebec called the heartland of Canada?
8). What economic activities take place in British Columbia?
9). What is the location of Afghanistan in relation to Saudi Arabia?
My answers to these questions are the following:
1). The industries which drive Canada's economy are services industries, including finance, utilities, trade, transportation, tourism, communications, insurance, and real estate.
2). The majority of the population is located in a region which is mostly along a 100-mile wide strip of land just north of the U.S. border.
3). The Labrador Sea, the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and the Atlantic Ocean border the Atlantic Provinces.
4). The major economic activity of the Atlantic Ocean is logging.
5). The Manitoba, the Saskatchewan, and the Alberta provinces make up the Prairie Provinces.
6). The small population of the Atlantic Provinces is due largely to the provinces' rugged terrain and severe weather.
7). Ontario and Quebec are called the heartland of Canada because Ontario is the largest province in terms of population, Quebec in land area.
8). Mining, fishing, and logging are the economic activities which take place in British Columbia.
Your answer for 4 is wrong.
Check this map for the answer for 9.
For question #4, I meant to type "Atlantic Provinces."
I don't know how to answer question #9. I experience difficulties reading maps in terms of finding how a location is in relation to another.
I believe you're right now about # 4, although I'm not positive. My sources mention logging, tourism, fishing, and services as primary economic activities of the Atlantic provinces.
All maps are laid out the same way with North at the top, East to the right, South at the bottom, and West to the left.
Which direction would you go from Saudi Arabia to Afghanistan?
I would travel in a northeastern direction.
