(8a)( i). bush burning:

this exposes the soil to erosion

(ii) excessive rainfall /wind: this increases the rate of soil erosion

(iii) shifting cultivation: this also exposes the soil to erosion

(iV) absence of vegetation cover: this exposes the soil surface to svere erosion

(8b) (i)Afforestation: this is the planting of trees to control planting of trees to control erosion

(ii) controlled grazing: few animals should be allowed to graze on an are to avoid soil erosion

(iv) legislation: these are laws made to combat erosion through soil conservation boards

(7a) (i)The many rivers, streams or their tributaries diverge from a central elevated highlans and flow away to different directions

(ii) in this pattern, there is irregular branching of the tributaries or streams in many directions like brancehes of a tree

(iii) the streams or tributaries flow almost parallel to each other inline with the nature of the rock materials of the soil.

(7b) (I).climatic and hydrololgy conditions

(ii.) the nature of vegetation

(6a) chemical weathering occurs in regions of humid climate through the following:

solution, oxidation,hydrolysis,hydration and carbonation, while physical weathering or mechanical weathering has to do with rock breaking into small particles.

The processes involved include repeated temperature change, frost action and repeated wetting and drying

(6b)(i)Karst regions are very important for heritage and tourism.

The distinctive scenery of karst regions

(ii)karst regions contain sites of archeological importance

(iii)karst environment have a distinctive ecology and often possess a distinctive ecology

(iv) karst limestone is often encountered in civil engineering projects. Due to its particular characteristics, including an irregular bedrocks surface, the presence of voids and rapids ungderground drainage

(1a) old scale; 1:50,000. Newscale; 1:100,000. Old scale; 1:50,000. New scale; 1:100,000.

It means you are to reduce the map since it is in fraction

(1b) Actual distance from function to wuro maliki

(1c) Drainage pattern is dendritic

(1d) occupation: animal rearing, fishing, farning, transportation
