(3) a good conservation practice for nonrenewable natural resources
(4) lack of concern for renewable natural resources \
2 To minimize negative environmental impact, a community should
(1) approve the weekly spraying of pesticides on the plants in a local park
(2) grant a permit to a chemical manufacturing company to build a factory by one
of its lakes, with no restrictions on waste disposal
(3) make a decision about building a new road in a hiking area based only on the
(4) set policy after considering both the risks and benefits involved in building a toxic

3 Deforestation would most immediately result in
(1) the disappearance of native species
(2) industrialization of an area
(3) the depletion of the ozone shield
(4) global warming
4 Toxic chemicals called PCBs, produced as a result of manufacturing
were dumped into the Hudson River. What was most likely a
result of this action
on fish in the Hudson River?
(1) Some fish became unfit to eat.
(2) The fish populations increased.
(3) Thermal pollution of the river increased,
decreasing the fish population.
(4) The carrying capacity for fish increased in the river.
5 Human impact on the environment is often more dramatic than the

(1) need for water
(2) need for food
(3) ability to adapt to change
(4) ability to alter the environment
