QUESTION TYPE: Most Strongly Supported
- Big shifts in climate cause migration.
- Migration mixes ideas, which is necessary for quick advances in civilization.
ANALYSIS: There isn’t really much we can do with these two statements. Shifts in climate don’t necessarily lead to advances in civilization. And intermingling of ideas could happen without shifts in climate.
The correct answer simply rephrases point one. If shifts in climate cause migrations then people will only stay settled (and not migrate) where the climate doesn’t shift too much.
- We only know climate can be a cause. There could be other more important causes
- We only know some climactic shifts can lead to more civilization. But some other shifts might simply be disastrous.
- CORRECT. If there were drastic shifts in climate then the populations would move and wouldn’t stay settled.
- We have no idea if populations settle everywhere they could settle.
- Intermingling ideas is only a necessary condition for advanced civilization, not a sufficient condition.
