Introduction to Population Structure and PyramidsHi. We were a bit confused about the fact that there were two convex labels in the labeling exercise above! Surely there should be two for concave (Stage 1 and 2), straight lines for Stage 3 and convex for Stage 4?

Sample Papers - Leisure, Tourism and SportHi Paul, is the term "honeypot" one that could conceivably show up in an exam? And would it be fine for students to define it as simply a popular location?
