    A fumarole is basically when water is disacharged from vents in the lithosphere which decreases in pressure causing the water to become steam
    A volcanic plug is the hardening of magma over the vent of a volcano e.g. Arthur's seat in Edinburgh

    So I would talk about the development of technology referring to the Internet, where it has made trading easier as consumers are able to purchase things at a click of a button and companies are able to use technology to meet the demands of the consumer, I would also talk about how because of the development of extraction of oil, transport sectors have boomed, making it easier to transport goods via container ships, and also skilled worker are able to easily travel seeking work as airplane ticket prices are cheaper. These enhance economic growth as it allows countries to become more interdependent and allow them to trade more freely, because the flows of capital, goods and people are made greater and therefore their economies are able to flourish.
    In terms of markets, I'm not quite sure, personally I would refer to countries such as the Asian tigers and China, who in the past have become more open to trade and less authoritarian and a centralised economy, the prospect of investing into new countries and therefore gain a wider area of demand from consumers has made TNCs invest into these countries, they also offer the opportunity of new resources which TNCs can exploit to allow both the host country and source country to benefit through the creation of jobs and profits made from the TNC is often sent back to the source country.

    Obviously not all of them 😂
    But these are taken off the specification and haven't been directly asked before so there's a good chance!
    There are clearly more likely questions for each unit such as the plate tectonic theory 40m, but I've added these so there is no element of surprise on Thursday so we can all achieve the a*, as last year I got full UMS using this method and thought it would be nice to share...
    I haven't included the very likely questions which have been asked before, because you can just look at the mark scheme for answers instead of us trying to work out a model answer together
