Note : This section contains five (5) questions of five (5) marks each based on the following passage. Each question should be answered in about thirty (30) words.

A town cannot exist simply by servicing its own population and in order to flourish and expand, a proportion of its goods and services must be sold beyond its own limits. It follows from this that a proportion of any urban labour force is directly concerned with the production of goods and services for ‘export’ . These are termed basic or city-forming workers, since their efforts bring money into the town, thus enabling the purchase of raw materials, foodstuffs and other goods which the town cannot supply for itself. The remaining workers are referred to go non-basic or city servicing workers, since their role is to service the needs of the urban population itself. Although essential to the functioning of the town, the non-basic workers depend upon the revenue brought into the town by those in the basic sector. This interpretation of urban occupation structure is known as the basic/non-basic concept.
