2010 AP® Human Geography Free-Response Questions

Economics and demographics—how are they related? A set of questions from the College Board explore complex ideas such as how the location of raw goods drive the economics of where industries develop and what dynamics weaken or strengthen a state's sense of national identity. It also dives into what extent a country's demographics affect its economic development. Using a scaffolded approach, the free-response questions help individuals think critically while gaining practice for similar exams.
