Questions:

   1) Examine the map you have color coded. What patterns do
      you see? In what areas of the world are the majority of the
      MDCs found? In what areas or regions are most LDCs
      found? Where do we find most LLDCs?
   2) Explain how the map pattern illustrates why the disparity
      (difference) of income distribution and standard of living is
      often referred to as the North-South gap?
   3) Using your notes and the map you have created, what
      differences are there between the three categories of
      countries?
   4) Using your notes and the map you have created, what is the
      typical economic profile or description of an MDC, LDC and
