Question 8

(a) Draw a sketch map of Africa. On the map, show and name:
(i) one area important for the mining of copper;
(ii) one area where gold is mined; one petroleum refinery;
(iii) one important port for exporting copper.

(b) In what five ways is copper mining important to the economy of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)?

This question was not popular among the candidates and most of the candidates who answered the question could not draw good map outline, neither could they correctly insert the required features.  A good practice with map will improve their performance. Quite a good number of the candidates answered the (b) part of the question well.
