Nabteb 2018 Geography (Physical & Practical) Runz Questions And Answers

Two difference between Local time and standard time
(1) It is different time at different cities or states in a country
(2) It is usually taken from the longitudinal location of the town
(1) Is the time generally adopted by a county
(2) It is usually taken from the central meridian of that country.

(2b) ? long of town Y where is 1:00pm
When Greenwich time is 5:00?
Town Y? longitude (0)
| |
1:00pm 5:00pm

Time difference = 1:00pm -5:00 = 4hours
Covert 4 hours to longitude
Since 15ᵒ 1hour
Therefore; 4 hrs = 4×15ᵒ =60ᵒ
Since the arrow is pointing question mark ie west
Therefore Y is 60ᵒw

Four important of soil

(ii) Building: all buildings are standard create on soil
(iii) Constructions: various forms of constructions like roads, industries, railways are constructed with soil and on the soil

Mass wasting (movement) is the movement (sliding falling or creeping) of rock materials from one place to another under the influence of gravity

Two types of mass wasting:
(i) Soil Creep: is a slow downward movement of soil materials down a gentle slope. This movement is added by water which acts as the lubricant. Alternate wetting and drying, heating and cooling of the soil are others factors that can promote soil creep
(ii) Rock fall: this occurs when large mass of rocks fall from a steep cliff. This type of mass wasting is the most rapid of all.

(i)it can lead to loss of farmlands

(ii) Hospitals
(iii) Transportation industries
(iv) Agricultural industries
(v) Monitoring of water ways
(vi) Also available in banking industries
(vii) Monitoring of water ways
