Question 82

Which region has the highest disparity, of democratic participation, between rich and poor?

Solution

We have to find the region with the highest disparity in democratic participation between rich and poor. We can check this by calculating the difference between the highest and lowest values from the chart.

North America = 20 - 18 = 2

C&E Europe = 20 - 5 = 15

Africa = 11 - 10 = 1

South America = 20 - 14 = 6

Western Europe = 19.95 - 19.85 = 0.1

Thus, C&E Europe has the highest disparity between the rich and the poor.

Hence, option B is the answer.
