Geography Lesson – Poem 2- Question Answers

Working with the poem

Question 1:

Find three or four phrases in stanzas one and two which are likely to occur in a geography lesson.


Some phrases which are likely to occur in a geography lesson are listed below:

  1. “the city had developed the way it had”

  2. “it scaled six inches to the mile”

  3. “the country had cities where the rivers ran”

  4. “the valleys were populated”

  5. “land and water attracted man”

Question 2:

Seen from the window of an aeroplane, the city appears

(i) as haphazard as on ground.

(ii) as neat as a map.

(iii) as developed as necessary.

Mark the right answer.

Answer: The right answer is

(iii) as developed as necessary.

Question 3:

Which of the following statements are examples of “the logic of geography”?

(i) There are cities where there are rivers.

(ii) Cities appear as they are not from six miles above the ground.

(iii) It is easy to understand why valleys are populated.

(iv) It is difficult to understand why humans hate and kill one another.

(v) The earth is round, and it has more sea than land.


Statements (i), (iii) and (iv) are correct.

Question 4:

Mention two things that are

(i) clear from the height.

(ii) not clear from the height.


  1. From the height, it is clear that the cities and valleys of the various countries are populated near the rivers. Besides, it also implies that the earth is round and that it had more sea than land.

  2. From the height, it is difficult to understand why the men on the earth find reasons to hate each other and build walls across cities, and want to kill. This implies that Nature does not restrict itself in boundaries, but human beings are always trying hard to divide the beautiful planet by building walls among themselves.
