Study the map extract on a scale of 1: 100,000 and answer the following questions:
  (a) Draw an outline of the map on a scale of 1 : 300,000.

On youroutline, show and name:

(i) the settlement of Lariski and Wuna Dole;

(ii) river Lakau and its direction of flow (use an arrow);
(iii) 1,1 OOft contour.
     (b)     Calculate the actual distance in kilometers along the railway line from the bridge near Zangoma to the bridge along River Gaji.
      (c)(i) Using evidences from the map, state any three occupations of the people in the mapped area.
          (ii)       Identify with reasons, the most important settlement on the map.


This was a compulsory question. Many candidates wrongly answered the question.
Some of them enlarged the map instead of reducing the whole map to the required scale. Some of them were able to correctly insert the features as required. Many were not able to calculate the distance well because they measured wrongly. Many candidates got the occupation of the people in the mapped area correctly.
