answer:
Economic activities are almost always related to a region’s climate and natural resources. Some examples are farming, fishing, forestry, and mining, activities that are impossible under certain land and climate conditions. Primary activities are activities that use natural resources directly, such as agriculture and forestry. On the other hand, secondary activities are like industries that process natural resources, which include the processing of raw materials and manufacturing them into finished products. Lastly, service industries, are the third level of economic activities, and include businesses that are not directly related to the gathering of raw materials or to manufacturing. These last activities include transportation, advertising, and government.
