ANSWER: Afghanistan Tajikistan Kazakhstan Azerbaijan Turkmenistan
Settlement in the region is high because of the immigration of Han Chinese to the area. Settlement is sparse because the mountains in the region are too steep. Settlement is sparse because the Gobi Desert is located there. Settlement is consistently in the range of 26–100 people per square kilometer because of the fertile soil in the region. Settlement is consistent, with several cities located along the rivers in this region.
Correct According to the inset box in the upper right­hand corner, the Gobi Desert is located along the border of China and Mongolia and is virtually uninhabited.
Part E Using the information included in the map below to guide you, which three of the following statements are probably true? Check all that apply. Hint 1. Determining population and city size As shown in the map legend section "People Per Square Kilometer," population density is represented with shades of yellow, orange, and red. The darkest shades of red indicate areas with the highest population densities. The section below that, "Population," indicates that the size of the dot symbols suggests the population size of the corresponding metropolitan area.
All attempts used; correct answer displayed The presence of rivers plays a key role in settlement in the southwestern part of Central Asia. The areas closest to rivers generally have high population density. The inset box associated with Uzbekistan also indicates that population concentrations are found in the river valleys in Uzbekistan. Vast areas of Central Asia have few, if any, people. In large portions of Central Asia, the population density is fewer than 6 people per square kilometer, as indicated by the light yellow color throughout the map. The largest metropolitan areas in Central Asia have no more than 5 million people. According to the map legend, the size of the dot symbol suggests the population size of the corresponding metropolitan area. You can see on the map the largest dot symbol belongs to "Metropolitan areas 1–4.99 million." Therefore the largest metropolitan areas in Central Asia have no more than 5 million people. Discussion The above map showing “Population Density in Central Asia” gives some clues to the reason why so much of the region is very sparsely inhabited. Below, a climate map of the region will provide additional evidence. Refer to the map below to answer the questions that follow. Most of Tibet’s population is found in the northern part of the country. The presence of rivers plays a key role in settlement in the southwestern part of Central Asia. The Aral Sea and Lake Balkhash are population centers. The largest metropolitan areas in Central Asia have no more than 5 million people. Vast areas of Central Asia have few, if any, people.
