Question and answer
Africa was one of the sites where agriculture began. Archaeological investigations suggest that knowledge of cultivation moved west from the ancient Judaea (southern Palestine) and arrived in the Nile Delta in Egypt about the fifth millennium before Christ. Settled agriculture then traveled down the Nile Valley and moved west across the southern edge of the Sahara to the central and western Sudan. By the first century B.C., settled agriculture existed in West Africa. From there it spread to the equatorial forests. African farmers learned to domesticate plants including millet, sorghum, and
yams. Cereal-growing people probably taught forest people to plant regular fields. Gradually, African farmers also learned to clear land by burning. They evolved a sedentary way of life – living in villages, clearing fields, relying on root drops, and fishing. According to the passage, which crops were domesticated in Africa? A. Cereals such as wheat B. Oats, peas, and barley C. Root crops only D. Millet, sorghum, and yams

User: Africa was one of the sites where agriculture began. Archaeological investigations suggest that knowledge of cultivation moved west from the ancient Judaea (southern Palestine) and arrived in the Nile Delta in Egypt about the fifth millennium before Christ. Settled agriculture then traveled down the Nile Valley and moved west across the southern edge of the Sahara to the central and western Sudan. By the first century B.C., settled agriculture existed in West Africa. From there it spread to the equatorial forests. African farmers learned to domesticate plants including millet, sorghum, and yams. Cereal-growing people probably taught forest people to plant regular fields. Gradually, African farmers also learned to clear land by burning. They evolved a sedentary way of life – living in villages, clearing fields, relying on root drops, and fishing. According to the passage, which crops were domesticated in Africa? A. Cereals such as wheat B. Oats, peas, and barley C. Root crops only D. Millet, sorghum, and yams

User: Read the following passage and answer the questions 6 through 10: As infants and caregivers respond to one another in the first year, the infant begins to form an attachment – a deep, affectionate, close, and enduring relationship - to these important figures. John Bowlby, a British psychoanalyst, drew attention to the importance of attachment when he observed the dire effects of separation from parents on children who had been orphaned during World War II. These children’s depression and other emotional scars led Bowlby to propose a theory about the importance of developing a strong attachment to one’s primary caregivers – a tie that normally keeps infants close to these caregivers and, therefore, safe. Soon after Bowlby described his theory, researchers in the United States began to investigate how such attachments are formed and what happens when they are not formed, or when they are broken by loss or separation. Perhaps the most dramatic of these studies was conducted with monkeys by Harry Harlow.
