i just used case studies like for the coastal erosion i talked about my hurricanes and in the colonialism one i talked about india and like bihar and maharashtra
For the coastal flooding
I talked about the tropical cyclones in the US and Haiyan and talked about the impacts of coastal flooding on first then impacts of wind speeds

For colonialism
I talked about Chiin’s neo colonialism on Africa and UK’s colonialism in the past benefits
Then negatives in the second paragraph
What was the 8 marker for section c ,it was about a country or megacity ?
Hi, for the question "For an emerging country, explain how advanced communication improved its economic development" (3 marks), I mentioned as follows:
In india advanced communication such as technology for example phones etc meant that people could communicate with distance relatives through video call and phones which resulted in social wellbeing and better health of the population means that more able to work especially young people so increases gdp improving economic development

Does that sound right? Will I get any marks for this?

were we supposed to write about positives? because the question was how colonialism and neo colonialism increase global inequalities historically, and there aren’t positives to that
Can someone respond my question pls

Maybe you'll get some marks for it, I talked about BRICS and G20, I don't know if that's right though

It was an assess question and neo colonialism and colonialism has had positives on Africa as well . Colonialism mainly only negatives but neo colonialism has many positives
