Sample Answer Passage:

In many coral-reef areas, tourism is one of the main industries bringing employment, and in many cases, is promoted to provide alternatives to fisheries-based livelihoods and to ensure that local reef resources are conserved. In the Caribbean alone, tours based on scuba-diving have attracted 20 million people in one year. The upgrading of roads and communications associated with the expansion of tourism may also benefit local communities. However, plans for development must be considered carefully. The ability of the poorer members of the community to access the benefits of tourism is far from guaranteed, and requires development guided by social, cultural, and environmental principles. There is growing recognition that sustainability is a key requirement, as encompassed in small-scale eco-tourism activities, for instance.

Questions:

1.Tourism is one of the primary industries that bring job opportunities to the coral-reef regions. 

2. Caribbean Island depends only on tourism for their economy. 

3. Scuba-diving in the Caribbean Islands witnesses more than 20 million tourists in one year. 

4. Plans associated with upgrading the roads and communications will not help expand the coral-reef region’s development. 

5. In the small-scale ecotourism activities, sustainability is the crucial requirement.

1.Tourism is one of the leading industries that bring job opportunities to the coral-reef regions – True. 

2. Caribbean Island depends only on tourism for their economy – Not given
