QUESTION TYPE: Most Strongly Supported
- Growth, unemployment and inflation are important economic indicators.
- A bunch of countries have good economies but are small.
- All of the countries listed in the stimulus have populations seven million or smaller.
ANALYSIS: We’re not given any information on what effect population has on a country’s economy. Most of the wrong answers talk about this.
- Too strong. Maybe those countries would have even better economies if they had larger populations.
- We don’t know anything about countries with populations larger than 7 million. Maybe they all have terrible economies.
- CORRECT. Many of the countries listed in the stimulus have viable economies but populations smaller than 7 million. So a small country can have a good economy.
- It’s hard to say. We only have a few scattered examples of small countries, all of which are successful. But we don’t know if size had anything to do with it.
- We have zero information on what effect population has.
