Observation

This was not a popular question among the candidates.  Very poor map outlines  were drawn by many of the candidates who answered it.  They were also not able to insert the following soil zones properly:

  • Northern zone of sandy soils.
  • Interior zone of lateritic soils.
  • Zone of alluvial soil.
  • Southern zone of forest soils.

Many of the candidates were able to describe the characteristic features of two of the soil zones.
