The correct answers are:

C. spills from the nation's oil production.

Nigeria is one of the leading oil producers in sub-Saharan Africa, but unfortunately, it is not taking cautions towards the protection of the environment. The oil spills are a common thing, and the only thing in mind of the companies is profit, so they are not fixing the problems, but instead, they are leaving it as it is, and the situation is worsening all the time.

B. desertification caused by poor agricultural practices.

The agriculture in Africa, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, in general, is still primitive, and people re not taking into consideration the land degradation that they are causing with their methods. One of the reasons is the poverty, so people only look short term, and try to profit as much as they can, though on the long run, they are destroying the land and inviting desertification, thus losing the land to profit from it.

What is the most likely reason that two of the planets have rotations that are different than would be expected by the nebular hypothesis? As the dust cloud collapsed due to gravity, the protostar's gravity sent out shock waves As the growing planet was clearing it's path around the sun, two large planetessimals collided, tipping the growing planet Gravitation influence of other planets They just got tired

The most appropriate answer is "As the growing planet was clearing its path around the sun, two large planetessimals collided, tipping the growing planet". This phenomenon happened to the earth in the early stages of the development of the solar system. Scientist theorize that a planet called 'Thea' collided with the Earth. This collision resulted in the present tilt in the Earth's axis and the creation of the moon.

How does urban sprawl contribute to air pollution?

Urban sprawl refers to the expansion of poorly planned, low-density, auto-dependent development, which spreads out over large amounts of land, putting long distances between homes, stores, and work and creating a high segregation between residential and commercial uses with harmful impacts on the people living in these areas and the ecosystems and wildlife that have been displaced. Although some would argue that urban sprawl has its benefits, such as creating local economic growth, urban sprawl has many negative consequences for residents and the environment, such as higher water and air pollution, increased traffic fatalities and jams, loss of agricultural capacity, increased car dependency, higher taxes, increased runoff into rivers and lakes, harmful effects on human health, including higher rates of obesity, high blood pressure, hypertension and chronic diseases, increased flooding, decrease in social capital and loss of natural habitats, wildlife and open space. In its path, urban sprawl consumes immeasurable acres of forests, farmland, woodlands and wetlands and in its wake, leaves vacant storefronts, boarded up houses, closed businesses, abandoned and usually contaminated industrial sites, and traffic congestion, which can stretch miles from urban centers and is creating a hidden debt of unfunded infrastructure and services, urban decay, social dysfunction, and environmental degradation.
